§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage (1) what assistance his Department is giving towards the restoration of the Grand theatre in Doncaster; and if he will make a statement; 
(2) what assistance his Department is giving for the conversion of the Square chapel at Halifax west Yorkshire to a recital room; and if he will make a statement; 
(3) what assistance his Department is giving to the creation of a theatre in the Odeon cinema at Scarborough; and if he will make a statement; 
§ Mr. Dorrell
English Heritage has contributed £342,228 towards the cost of eligible repairs to the Square chapel, Halifax. The Arts Council announced last month an award of £1.4 million from the national lottery to the Stephen Joseph theatre, which is developing the Odeon cinema, Scarborough. I understand that plans for the development of the Grand theatre, Doncaster, are still at an early stage.
Both the Square chapel and the Stephen Joseph theatre receive funding for their artistic programmes from the Yorkshire and Humberside arts board.
