Arts Select Committee to review Arts Council England’s regional funding policy

WestminsterA House of Commons Select Committee has opened an inquiry into the work of Arts Council England and its regional funding policies. ACE is to be the subject of a Culture, Media and Sport Committee inquiry which is seeking views on whether the geographical distribution of arts funding is fair, and whether there is any justification for the current weighting of this towards London. The inquiry will also examine the scope, scale and remit of ACE, and will be examining the economic and artistic criteria that underpin funding decisions. The Committee is inviting written evidence from those who wish to contribute. Written submissions can be sent online via a web portal which will be open for submissions until Monday 24 February. The Committee chair is Conservative MP John Whittingdale (Maldon) and its all-party members represent constituencies in Exeter, Ealing Central and Acton, Bournemouth West, Chatham and Aylesford, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Manchester, Withington, Liverpool, Walton, Paisley and Renfrewshire North and Bradford South.
