To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when Sir Richard Eyre's working group on the future of the Royal Opera House and English National Opera will begin its work. [15307]

Sir Richard has already begun work and hopes to finalise the membership of the working group shortly. He plans that the working group should meet later this month. On 6 November, Sir Richard issued an open consultation letter inviting views from all those with an interest, and who wish to contribute to this debate. The text of the letter, and of my letter to Sir Richard setting out in full the terms of reference for the review I have asked him to conduct, have been placed in the Libraries of the House.
