Festivals: Northern Ireland

Volume 691: debated on Thursday 26 April 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much funding there is in the festival transitional fund in Northern Ireland for the current year; on what basis it is allocated; and after what equality process. [HL3371]

A contingency of £100,000 has been set aside for the possibility of a reduced level of transitional funding for specified festivals in 2007.

Final decisions on the possibility of any transitional funding in 2007-08 and the basis on which it is allocated will rest with the Minister for Culture, Arts and Leisure.
