HC Deb 02 March 1994 vol 238 cc720-1W
Sir Thomas Arnold

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage when he will receive a copy of the Arts Council working party report into the funding of the regional orchestras.

Mr. Brooke

I understand that the report, which was produced jointly by a group of council members and officers, will be considered by the Arts Council at its meeting on 2 March. The report is a working document for the use of the Council. My Department routinely receives information copies of Arts Council papers.
