DCMS Oral Questions

MD_at_DCMS_Questions.jpgMichael asked two questions from the despatch box today during DCMS Oral Questions in his role as Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.

Michael highlighted a decline in young children taking part in cultural activities including dance, music, theatre, drama, arts and crafts on this Government’s watch.

He also raised concerns that the Department for Culture, Media and Sport is facing a 5 per cent real terms cut and that the central grant to local government is being cut by a massive 56 per cent – a £6.1 billion reduction by 2019/20 – which will impact on local arts and culture.
