HC Deb 02 July 2003 vol 408 cc307-8W
Mr. Greg Knight

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will list the theatres in the UK which receive a subsidy from public funds. [122570]

Estelle Morris

Over 200 theatre organisations throughout England receive funding in one form or another from Arts Council England, too many to list here. The following two lists however are those organisations within Yorkshire which receive funding through Arts Council England's Yorkshire office. The first list are those organisations that are clearly theatre (including puppetry and mime) and the second, venues that are receiving rather than producing theatres and companies and that are cross art form/ combined arts/ street arts or circus.
