Mr. Frank R. White

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how much money was allocated to the arts in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and all the regions of England, in each of the past five years.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Expenditure on arts bodies, museums, etc., for which the relevant Ministers are responsible was as follows:

disproportionate expenditure. I am writing to the hon. Member to explain why this is so.
