§ 74. Mr. Gerald Bowden
asked the Minister for the Arts what is his latest estimate of new money for the arts arising from the operation of the business sponsorship incentive scheme.
§ Mr. Luce
This scheme continues to be highly successful. I announced the latest list of 48 awards on 26 January, bringing the total of new money for the arts under the scheme to £11.12 million. 400 businesses have sponsored the arts for the first time.
