HC Deb 09 May 1988 vol 133 c33W
53. Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Minister for the Arts what is his current estimate of new business sponsorship of the Arts in 1988–89.

Mr. Luce

The level of business sponsorship has been steadily increasing, especially following the introduction of the business sponsorship incentive scheme in 1984. The estimate for 1988–89 is that the sponsorship figure will be over £30 million.
