Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

11. To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps he is taking to improve access for young people to arts and culture. (172207)

We are committed to giving young people access to high quality cultural activities.

We continue to make significant investment in this area. For example, the Government recently announced a total investment of £332 million in school music over the next three years.

Building on this, in the forthcoming Children's Plan we will set out the steps we will take to give all young people access to five hours of culture a week, in and out of the curriculum.
