DMCS - unfair council cuts will hit the arts - 30/01/14

Following powerful new analysis by Labour of the unfair impact of council cuts in the most deprived areas, which compounds my concern about the impact of cuts to Arts Council funding, I raised this issue in Parliament.  As council funding is even more important for the arts than central Government funding, this will have a massive impact on the arts in deprived communities, especially as they are the least able to mobilise philanthropy and people have less money in their pockets to spend on participating in the arts.
