HC Deb 21 July 1997 vol 298 cc438-9W
Mr. McNulty

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans he has to enable greater access to the arts. [7510]

Mr. Fisher

Access is a central theme of my Department's policies for the arts. The public has a right to the widest possible access in return for the public funding which the arts receive. The proposals we have made to increase access to the arts include plans to pilot open theatre nights and an artscard scheme for young people as well as plans to review the case for admission charges to core collections in our national museums and galleries.
