To ask the Minister for the Arts what representations he has received following his statement on the Wilding report.
I have received representations from a wide range of interested organisations and individuals.
To ask the Minister for the Arts if he will make a statement on the progress in implementing the Wilding report reforms.
Since I announced on 13 March my proposals for a new structure of arts funding, good progress has been made by Mr. Mason, the manager of the reforms. The steering group I established has met regularly, and in addition, working groups of the interested parties are looking at detailed issues. As a result I hope to announce further decisions in the near future.
