asked the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State answering in respect of the Arts if he will give a breakdown of his calculations of 1983–84 Arts spending by the Greater London council and the metropolitan county councils upon which he based the extra funds to be made available to the Arts Council in 1986–87.
From the information then available to us, and which I supplied to the hon. Member in reply to his question on 24 October 1983 at columns 27–28, the total budget estimates for the performing arts, film and museums in 1983–84 by the GLC and the six metropolitan county councils were £31,843,000 broken down as follows:
|1983–84 £000's (Budget estimates)|
|Tyne and Wear||2,732||231|
