HC Deb 16 January 1996 vol 269 c560W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he proposes to take to ensure that the establishment of a national concert hall, opera house and centre for the performing arts is established in Wales; and if he will make a statement. [9313]

Mr. Hague

I am sympathetic to the development of a national opera house in Wales, but decisions on the provision of arts facilities are a matter for the funding bodies concerned.
