Arts Council of England: Finance

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 17 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what percentage of the money spent by (a) Arts Council England and (b) Sport England on media monitoring services came from National Lottery income in each of the last three years. (240953)

[holding answer 8 December 2008]: Arts Council England inform us that media monitoring costs are drawn from their media relations budget, which is sourced from Managed Funds and drawn from Exchequer funding.

Sport England use a general formula for their administration overheads which means that 45 per cent. of funding is provided from Exchequer funding and 55 per cent. from lottery sources.
