Arts Council

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport pursuant to the answer of 11 June 2007, Official Report, column 739W, on the Arts Council, how many projects of all sizes were cancelled by Arts Council England in each of the last five years. (143017)

On average, the Arts Council receives approximately 8,500 applications a year, resulting in awards for 4,500 projects on average.

It is not possible systematically to identify records on the Arts Councils grants systems of awards that were cancelled. Consequently to provide an answer would involve manually examining hundreds, if not thousands of records, which would incur disproportionate costs.
