§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he will announce his policy for central Government assistance to the arts via London local authorities following the abolition of the Greater London council.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
Our proposals for funding the arts in London after the abolition of the Greater London council are set out in our White Paper "Streamlining the Cities" (Cmnd 9063) and the associated consultation paper. We are considering the many representations which we have received on these proposals.
