HC Deb 12 January 1987 vol 108 c58W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Minister for the Arts what monitoring is undertaken by his Department in respect of the total amount spent on the Arts by public and private bodies.

Mr. Luce

[pursuant to his reply, 18 December 1986, c. 629]: My Department is responsible for its own expenditure and monitors expenditure under the arts programme by the non-departmental public bodies for which I am responsible. The monitoring of expenditure by other public bodies concerned with the arts is a matter for the responsible sponsor Departments, although I am of course interested in the information.

The amount of expenditure on the arts by private bodies is a matter for the organisation and individuals concerned. Some information on this is available from CIPFA and the Policy Studies Institute which undertake research and public statistics in this area.
