HC Deb 20 June 2002 vol 387 c503W
Mr. Bryant

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when Culture Online will be launched; and whether further funding will be available. [63907]

Tessa Jowell

I am announcing today the commitment of a further £10 million for Culture Online.

Together with over £3 million remaining development funding, this new investment will allow Culture Online to develop a range of innovative projects over the next two years. Culture Online will involve partnerships between cultural organisations and the private sector and we will be commissioning proposals for projects later this year. The funding will provide exciting new digital materials to enhance the school curriculum and lifelong learning. These new materials will be available through a Culture Online website and linked to the DfES Curriculum Online portal and the National Grid for Learning. Culture Online will monitor and evaluate projects to ensure the success of the programme.
