[holding answer 20 February 2008]: The information is as follows:
(a) The Youth Culture Trust will grow out of the existing Creative Partnerships programme. This programme was already in the process of separating from Arts Council England and establishing itself as an external organisation. The costs of this will be met from the core grant to Creative Partnerships and we are not anticipating using any of the recently announced £25 million for this purpose.
(b) Some costs will be incurred in managing the pilot programme. These are still being finalised at present but our intention is to keep the administration costs to the absolute minimum consistent with successful delivery and evaluation. In addition, there will be some costs involved in auditing the current level of provision and the take up of cultural activities by children and young people.
