Arts: North East Region

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many arts organisations in (a) Stockton on Tees and (b) the North East received Arts Council England North East funding in each of the last 10 years. (149968)

The table shows the amount of arts organisations in Stockton on Tees and the North East in receipt of Arts Council funding for each of the last 10 years.

Figures for the North East prior to 1999-2000 relate to arts organisations receiving lottery funding distributed by the Arts Council. From 1999-2000 the figures for the North East include regularly funded organisations. This is because prior to the merger of the Regional Arts Boards in 2003-04 to create Arts Council England, each region managed its funding records independently.
