HC Deb 21 March 1991 vol 188 c192W
Mr. Parry

To ask the Minister for the Arts what representations he has received concerning the future of the Liverpool Playhouse theatre at the latest date; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

I have received a number of representations from hon. Members, and from others, on behalf of the Liverpool Playhouse. Although I have no direct involvement in this matter, I am being kept abreast of developments by the playhouse and the Arts Council. I understand that the appointed administrator is continuing his efforts, in consultation with a range of local interests and the Arts Council, to resolve the company's financial difficulties. I very much hope there will be a successful outcome.
