I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on his temporary assignment to the Front Bench. He is always entertaining, whether it be from the Front or Back Benches. China and the Soviet Union are interested in what we are doing to fund the arts. The fact that we are undergoing structural changes, in which we are looking to the private sector to play an increasingly important role, was of great interest to the Chinese Minister of Culture when he came here two weeks ago.
