§ Mr. Peter Ainsworth
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what representations he has received in relation to the future of Ealing Studios; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Janet Anderson
[holding answer 25 October 1999]: In addition to the representation from the hon. Member, my Department has received four representations about Ealing Studios, three of which were from interested parties.
The National Film and Television School, as the owner of the land at Ealing, is responsible for the future of the site. As one of my Department's funded bodies, the School will keep my officials fully informed of its plans.
