HC Deb 17 July 1989 vol 157 c57W
43. Mr. Gerald Bowden

To ask the Minister for the Arts if he has any plans to increase provision of training for practitioners in the arts; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Luce

The Training Agency has recently undertaken a survey of training in the arts and is organising a conference for practitioners to consider its report. Following these initiatives, my officials will be discussing with the Arts Council what further steps may need to be taken to improve training provision.
