However, as my hon. Friend knows, I am constrained on the subject because the funding of individual projects is, very properly, decided at arm’s length from Government
11 Mar 2009 : Column 409
by Arts Council England. It would, therefore, be wrong for me to comment on the level of support that the Arts Council gives to particular projects, but I am more than happy to comment in general on the issues that he has raised and to give my understanding of the steps that Arts Council England, East Midlands is taking to deal with them. I will make sure that Arts Council England East Midlands is fully apprised of his concern.

Like my hon. Friend, I am glad to say that over the past decade there has been record investment in the arts in this country, both inside and outside London. As an MP with a constituency outside London and as a Minister who has visited a number of very active artistic endeavours outside London, I cannot remember when the arts scene outside the M25 was as vibrant and as active as it is today. I am doing all I can to ensure that it remains so and keeps growing, despite the downturn.

My hon. Friend’s constituency is in the east midlands region which, like others, has seen a real improvement in artistic activity in the past 10 years. That is, as he mentioned, due in no small way to an increase in funding. Arts Council England East Midlands in this spending round will make grants of more than £50 million. This money will help to support more than 50 regularly funded organisations, or RFOs, including Sinfonia Viva, the region’s professional chamber orchestra, the Leicester, Nottingham and Northampton Theatre Trusts, numerous other dance troupes and folk groups, a fistful of festivals, and a very active forum for participatory arts organisations.

In addition, during the past three years about 900 grants for the arts have been made. Those are worth £16 million and have been funded from lottery funds in the east midlands region. This year sees the culmination of the £130 million arts venue programme in the east midlands. When the Nottingham Contemporary is completed this autumn, the city, which already has the New Art Exchange, will have two brand new arts venues. Those, together with the QUAD in Derby, First Movement in Rowsley and the Curve in Leicester, will give the region five exciting new arts centres.

John Mann: I thank the Minister for kindly giving way. From my constituency to Nottingham, to give the equivalent distance south of where we are now, would take us into the sea beyond Brighton. Therefore whatever happens in Nottingham or Leicester is of little concern to my constituents because it is nowhere near. That is my point.

Barbara Follett: I understand my hon. Friend’s point and I will deal with it now.

I am glad that so many residents of the east midlands have taken advantage of schemes such as Own Art and Take It Away to bring more than 1,000 musical instruments and 75 pieces of art into their own homes. A guitar propped up against a bedroom wall or a picture by an up-and-coming British artist in a living room provide a wonderful opportunity for interaction with the arts in people’s own time, in their own home and on a daily basis. But as my hon. Friend stressed, proximity is important, and I realise that distance plays a great part in access to the arts. People should not have to travel if they want to attend arts events, and those should most certainly not be restricted to the big towns and cities.

I am sorry to hear that my hon. Friend’s constituents do not have a cinema. When I first became the Member
11 Mar 2009 : Column 410
for Stevenage, there was a similar situation there. I would like to meet my hon. Friend to discuss ways of attracting a cinema to his town. If we are to engage and enthuse people, it is important that there should be projects and events happening within their own areas—within walking distance and in their communities. I therefore fully understand my hon. Friend’s concerns about provision in his constituency and the lack of an arts centre.

I am glad that my hon. Friend is in discussion with Arts Council England, East Midlands and that it has been meeting not only him, but local arts providers and Nottinghamshire county council, to try to address the issue. Discussions are also being held about other issues in the area, such as support for “Young Potential”, the scheme at the Worksop Regal for young people who live with real disadvantage which my hon. Friend mentioned. There are issues with the lease and required refurbishment at the Regal, and I hope that they will soon be resolved, not least because the Arts Council and Nottinghamshire county council are providing funding for a programme for learning-disabled people called “This Stage Life”, which is to be held at the Regal.

Further discussions are also being held about increasing the number of applications for creative partnerships, which my hon. Friend mentioned. Netherfield infant and nursery school and Meden school and technology college are already involved, and Arts Council England, East Midlands is working with Nottinghamshire county council to encourage more schools to participate. Arts Council England, East Midlands is also involved in talks about the development of the arts on offer for young people at Manton community and learning centre; it is particularly interested in working on dance provision. Arts Council England, East Midlands has also provided small amounts of funding for both development and building work for the Acorn community theatre, which my hon. Friend mentioned, in Worksop.

As I said at the outset, it is not proper for me to be involved in these discussions, but I am glad that the executive director of Arts Council England, East Midlands has been in contact with my hon. Friend, and I encourage my hon. Friend to develop that relationship.

I turn now to the lottery awards and other money. In the past five years, my hon. Friend’s constituency has had 24 Grants for the Arts awards, with a total value of more than £290,000. However, I have discussed with Arts Council England and the lottery the amount of money that is going from the good causes to local authorities with coalfields in them. Only about 10 per cent. of the total are involved, and we are doing what we can to raise that. However, for lottery awards to be made, lottery applications also have to be made. Sadly, we had only five grants for the arts applications in Bassetlaw in 2007-08. I hope that my hon. Friend will encourage his constituents to create schemes and events and apply for funding.

I am glad that my hon. Friend has been consulting with local young people about exactly what facilities and schemes they would like to see in Bassetlaw; I am sure that one of their requests was for a cinema, as that was top of my constituents’ list. That desire to engage the next generation has led to a number of initiatives. One of the schemes about which we are most excited—and
11 Mar 2009 : Column 411
of which his constituents can take advantage—is the “A Night Less Ordinary” scheme, which will provide more than 600,000 free theatre tickets to people under 26 over the next two years. I realise that the nearest theatres are some distance from my hon. Friend’s constituency—about 30 miles away—but I hope that people will take advantage of this offer to experience some of the Shakespeare, Arthur Miller and Tchaikovsky, among others, being put on in Sheffield, Nottingham, Barnsley, Scunthorpe and Derby over that two-year period. I also hope that the Find Your Talent programme, which has 10 pathfinders running across the country, will eventually help his constituents.


11 Mar 2009 : Column 412

The Government are involved in many national initiatives in music and dance, creative apprenticeships and singing. I hope that we are paving the way for a bright cultural future for our young people. I understand my hon. Friend’s concerns about local provision, and I hope that he will continue to work with Arts Council East Midlands, and with me, to take his ideas forward at a local level, and that arts provision continues to grow in his constituency. I will be watching developments closely and am willing to help him wherever and whenever I can.

Question put and agreed to.

House adjourned.
