HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 c55W
91. Mr. Squire

To ask the Minister for the Arts what steps he is taking to improve access to arts venues by the disabled.

Mr. Luce

As I announced last December, I have given £150,000 to the Carnegie Trust ADAPT fund to improve the accessibility of arts venues to the disabled. I am pleased to report that the question of accessibility is receiving much attention from arts orgsnisations. Additionally, I am aware that the Arts Council and the Museums and Galleries Commission both have disability officers to ensure that the needs of the disabled are fully considered.
