HC Deb 11 June 1990 vol 174 c45W
88. Mr. Butterfill

To ask the Minister for the Arts what proportion of money received under the business sponsorship incentive scheme goes to small, regional or innovative arts bodies, respectively.

Mr. Luce

In 1989–90, 71 per cent. of the award money went to arts organisations outside London, of which 17.8 per cent. went to Scotland and 14.8 per cent. to Wales. Small and innovative arts bodies continue to be successful in attracting sponsorship under the Scheme. I regret that detailed information on the proportion of funds that they receive is not available.
