Question on Arts Funding

My question in yesterday’s Culture, Media and Sport Questions, on regional arts funding.

Mr Ben Bradshaw (Exeter) (Lab): What recent assessment he has made of the balance of funding for arts organisations in the English regions. [905461]

The Minister of State, Department for Culture, Media and Sport (Mr Edward Vaizey): Funding decisions for the arts are made independently of Ministers by Arts Council England, but I am delighted to say that 53% of the funding that the Arts Council recently allocated to non-profit organisations will go outside London. It is the first time that the majority of that funding will have gone outside London.
