HC Deb 28 March 1988 vol 130 c350W
69. Mr. Bowis

To ask the Minister for the Arts what assessment he has made of the extent to which the arts can aid the regeneration of the inner cities.

Mr. Luce

I have been impressed by the arts contributions being made to inner-city regeneration, which I have seen during regional visits. I commend the efforts of the Arts Council and regional arts associations to build on these by presenting opportunities to developers and business interests.
