Minister for Culture, sport and the Welsh Language (02.05.02)

Clwyd Theatr Cymru (Funding)


Alison Halford:

Will the Minister make a statement on her long-term commitment to the funding of Clwyd Theatr Cymru? (WAQ17552)


Jenny Randerson:

I want Clwyd Theatr Cymru to continue to develop as a company of national standing and repute. I am keeping a close watch on the discussions about the theatre, but no decisions on its future funding arrangements will be taken until all possible options have been fully considered. In the meantime, the 15 per cent increase in funding that it received from the Arts Council of Wales for this year is very welcome.
 

Spending on the Arts in North Wales

 

Alison Halford:

How much has the Minister spent on arts provision for north Wales compared to south Wales since January 2000? (WAQ17553)


Jenny Randerson:

Since January 2000, the Arts Council of Wales has awarded 367 grants in north Wales, providing a total spend of just over ?11 million, and 517 grants in south Wales, totalling ?8.32 million.
These figures exclude grants and expenditure on the national remit companies, which provide services on an all-Wales basis.
