Live Music

Volume 447: debated on Monday 5 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps the Government are taking to support live music. (74136)

The Government are committed to supporting live music in all its forms. Through the Live Music Forum, we are working to ensure that opportunities for the promotion of live music are realised to the full. We are also achieving this through increased investment—funding for music through Arts Council England has more than doubled since 1997 to over £100 million in 2006.
