To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans he has to review his relationship with the Arts Council. [21455]

Mr. Fisher

My Department, in common with all others, is currently undertaking a fundamental review of expenditure. The review involves a re-evaluation of all the activities in the sectors covered by the department and its sponsored bodies, and of the relationships between them. The terms of reference for the review were published on 24 July and copies are available in the Library of the House.
