Written answers (Question to Culture)

My Department provides support for capital investment in cultural and arts facilities nationwide. I understand that no application for capital funding has been received from the facility referred to in the question. The question of current funding for cultural facilities would be a matter for the Arts Council or the local authority.

I understand that the organisation to which the Deputy refers will continue its performances through touring while its own premises is to be sold.
