HC Deb 15 March 2004 vol 419 cc55-6W
Mr. Denis Murphy

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will list the UK bodies that have benefited from funding under(a) the Kaleidoscope Programme, (b) the Ariane Programme and (c) the Raphael Programme. [160940]

Estelle Morris

Neither this Department nor the European Commission maintain an electronic database of awards that were made under the Kaleidoscope, Ariane and Raphael cultural funding programmes. We have, however, asked Euclid, the UK's Cultural Contact Point, who maintain paper records of all awards made under the aforementioned programmes to compile a list of UK recipients.

The list is likely to be too extensive to be printed in full in the Official Report and therefore will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses by 19 March 2004. Euclid has already started work on compiling an electronic database for UK recipients of awards under the current Culture 2000 funding programme.
