24. Mr. William O'Brien
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage when he last met the chairman of the Yorkshire and Humberside regional arts council to discuss the development of the arts in the Yorkshire region; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Dorrell
I have had no such discussion with the chairman of Yorkshire and Humberside arts board. Development of the arts in the regions is primarily a matter for each of the 10 regional arts boards working with the Arts Council of England.
