HC Deb 07 July 1986 vol 101 c86W
52. Mr. Hanley

asked the Minister for the Arts if he will make a statement on Sadler's Wells theatre.

Mr. Luce

I welcome the fact that funding for the theatre has been secured. In addition to support from the Arts Council and the successor authority, which has replaced GLC funding, two companies have come forward with generous sponsorships: Northern Telecom with £50,000 and Digital Equipment Company with 175,000 over two years, to which I have added £25,000 from my business sponsorship incentive scheme.
