§ 64. Ms. Abbott
To ask the Minister for the Arts what discussions he has had with regional arts associations about the use of funds available for developing equal opportunities policy in implementing arts projects.
§ Mr. Luce
I have not discussed this matter with regional arts associations, but the Arts Council has an equal opportunities policy covering employment practices, and an action plan committing 4 per cent. of the council's expenditure to ethnic minority arts within two years. These policies are supported by regional arts associations.
