asked the Minister for the Arts what is his policy towards the recommendation of the Attenborough report on access to the arts for the disabled, a copy of which has been sent to him.

Many of the Attenborough recommendations have been acted upon. The Arts Council and other funding bodies have issued codes of practice; in addition, the Arts Council has appointed a full-time disability officer. I am satisfied that the arts bodies for which I am responsible are fully aware of the needs and aspirations of disabled people, and are doing all that they can in their support.
