Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Supplementary memorandum submitted by Mr Robin Guthrie

  I gather that you had a hearing last week on the reorganisation of the Arts Council and the regional arts boards. I look forward to seeing your report.

  Will the Committee be looking further into the costs and possible effects of this ill-advised reorganisation, which is costly, disruptive and unnecessary, and rejected by the majority of those who responded to the public consultation? The Secretary of State had given her unequivocal support for the proposals before that consultation: only the House of Commons, and primarily your own Committee, can question the actions of the Executive in such circumstances.
