To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what expenditure was made by his Department on (a) the arts and (b) design in the last financial year.

In 1988–89 the Department made direct grants totalling some £15·7 million to individual bodies primarily concerned with the arts and design education. In addition, central grants to universities and other directly funded institutions of higher education were used to cover expenditure on arts and design education. However, information on the amounts involved is not held centrally.
