HC Deb 02 March 1989 vol 148 c324W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Minister for the Arts if he will make a statement on progress on the business sponsoring incentive scheme in the Doncaster area of South Yorkshire.

Mr. Luce

Figures for South Yorkshire are not available. However, latest figures for Yorkshire as a whole show that 75 companies, 57 of which are first-time sponsors, have supported the arts under the scheme. Over £1 million in new money has been generated, nearly £700,000 in new sponsorship which has been matched by over £332,000 in Government awards.
