Funding for Culture outside London
Responding to the Culture Media and Sport Committee's report that says more must be done to the address the imbalance in arts funding between London and the rest of the country, Jane Bonham Carter, Liberal Democrat Culture Spokesperson, said:
"This is a worrying trend that runs throughout our economy. The regions are frequently overlooked whilst money is repeatedly pumped into London and the South East.
"No one should be denied access to culture based on where they live and we would like to see the economy re-balanced if the Government are really committed to growth, social mobility and our creative industries."
