Dan Rogerson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what assessment he has made of the likely impact of Comprehensive Spending Review settlement on the portable antiquities scheme. 
James Purnell [holding answer 7 January 2008]: The portable antiquities scheme (PAS) is funded by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) and so any decisions on its future funding are a matter for the MLA. The MLA has already committed to maintain current levels of support for the scheme for 2008-09. Since the 2004 Spending Review, the Department's funding allocation to the MLA has not included ring-fencing for the PAS.
Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the timetable is for finalising Arts Council England funding proposals to arts organisations, with particular reference to regional theatres. 
Arts Council England gave arts organisations (including regional theatres) who have been notified of a proposal not to renew or to reduce their funding, until 15 January to respond. Regional councils will meet on the following dates to finalise proposals ahead of ratification by Arts Council England National Council on 29 January:
Tim Farron: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what assessment he has made of the effects on the cultural and creative sectors in Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency of the decision of the Northern Rock Foundation to cease co-funding of arts and heritage projects in partnership with Government agencies from 2008-09. 
Margaret Hodge: The closure of any charitable grant programme is clearly regrettable. Funding for individual arts organisations is a matter for Arts Council England. They are aware of the potential impact and are in discussion with partners and arts organisations in the area.
