HC Deb 03 February 1997 vol 289 cc491-2W
Sir Michael Neubert

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what plans she has to increase financial support for provincial touring companies. [12583]

Mr. Sproat

Ministers are keen to ensure that as many people as possible have access to the great artistic traditions of this country. In addition to the grant in aid funding, the Arts Council already invests in touring, the new lottery scheme, "Arts for Everyone", will enable support for new and additional touring activity, allowing audiences to be reached.
