Arts: Funding — Debate (3 Feb 2011)

Lord Evans of Temple Guiting: My Lords, I join everybody in thanking the noble Earl, Lord Clancarty, for initiating this debate. He told us that this was the House's first debate on the arts for 18 months, since a debate initiated by my noble friend Lord Bragg.

Revised Funding Code (25 Jul 2007)

Flooding (23 Jul 2007)

Lord Evans of Temple Guiting: My Lords, before we go any further, perhaps I may remind noble Lords that the Companion tells us: "Ministerial statements are made for the information of the House, and although brief comments and questions from all quarters of the House are allowed, statements should not be made the occasion for an immediate debate". I make that point because I think that a considerable number of Peers would...
