§ 26. Mr. Hooson
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he is satisfied with the progress of plans for business sponsorship of the arts; and what further steps he plans to encourage such sponsorship.
§ Mr. Macfarlane
I am very pleased with the progress of the Government's campaign to encourage greater business sponsorship of the arts. There is evidence of a change in the climate of opinion towards sponsorship, and I shall continue to take every opportunity to stress the advantages to both arts and business alike.
