Funding cuts for Arts Council England -

Statement from Dame Liz Forgan, Chair of Arts Council England: “We all knew this year would be tough. We do not understand why we have received a higher percentage cut than other DCMS funded bodies. Making cuts within the financial year is very difficult. We will now need to carefully assess what this figure of £19m means. The Arts Council has already trimmed its own budgets by £4 million in 2010/11 so this takes our total reduction this year to £23 million.
