Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Open University ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: It is for the university to advise its students what books they will need, and to consider in consultation with other interests concerned how these needs can best be met. The Department is examining with the university the implications for public library services. On the possibility of using other university libraries, I cannot add to the answer I gave my hon. Friend on 5th February.—[Vol....

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Open University ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I should like to send my hon. Friend a full account of what is being done in this sphere. The librarian of the Open University is in close contact with my Department. Some text books are being written specially for the courses and are being published. Others are out to tender, and some have been accepted. I do not want to take time with a long answer. However, I assure my hon. Friend that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Orchestral Resources (Arts Council's Report) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The report is now in the final stages of drafting and is likely to be presented to the Arts Council in April. It is for the council to decide whether the report will be published.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Orchestral Resources (Arts Council's Report) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I should like to take this opportunity to express my thanks for the work that has been done by the committee. As the hon. Gentleman knows, it has been a long and complicated job. The committee has worked extremely well, and expects to have its report out in June. Whether the full report is published is a matter to be decided by the Arts Council.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Council (Grants to Individuals) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: 371 awards totalling £121,538 were made by the Arts Council to individual artists in 1969–70. In making individual awards the Arts Council has regard both to the past achievements of the artist concerned and his potential for the future. The figures I have given do not include grants made to individuals by the regional arts associations.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Council (Grants to Individuals) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The amount represents 1·5 per cent. of the Arts Council's budget. I was impressed by a statement in the Report of the Estimates Committee in which it said that the performing arts stand on the shoulders of the individual writer or composer without whom they would have only a limited future". It is admittedly a difficult matter how to judge future hopes on past performance, but I should like...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Training of Administrators (Arts Council Inquiry) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The Arts Council has not yet appointed a successor to Sir Leslie Scarman, who gave up the chairmanship of the inquiry following his resignation from the council. It will be for the council to decide whether or not to publish the report of the inquiry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Training of Administrators (Arts Council Inquiry) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I am certain that the Arts Council will note what the hon. Lady has said, but there is no part of Government service where more work, more inquiries and more useful inquiries are being done. I am sure that it will not lose any time unduly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Computer Booking (Arts Council Report) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The Working Party on Computer Booking which will make its report to the Arts Council was set up by the council about a year ago at the request of the major subsidised companies and the Society of West End Managers. An interim report is expected to be available at the end of May.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Computer Booking (Arts Council Report) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I entirely agree with the hon. Lady. We badly need a computer system. Tickets might be available in one agency while people cannot get them from another. I can assure her that the Arts Council is well aware of this. It is in everyone's interests that we should get this system working as soon as possible.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Manuscripts, Documents and Archives (Export Control) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The three-month period for the submission of views does not expire until mid-April. A request has been received for an extension until the end of April. Some time will then be required for consideration of the views received.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Manuscripts, Documents and Archives (Export Control) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I agree that this has been neglected for far too long; it should have been put right many years ago. We are well aware of this, but it is, as the hon. Gentleman well knows, a complicated matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Council (New Activities Committee) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I am grateful to the hon. Member for this Question, because I think that the House should know that a great deal of silly nonsense has been talked. The Arts Council has a responsibility, as well as to the established arts, to find out what young experimental writers are doing. It allocated a mere £15,000, which is about 0·2 per cent. of its budget, for supporting new activities in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Council (New Activities Committee) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I am doubly grateful to the hon. Gentleman, because the dangerous characters who were let loose in this sensitive field of the new arts included Mr. Michael Astor, a former Conservative Member, who heroically became chairman. Another dangerous revolutionary involved is the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Handsworth (Sir E. Boyle). In other words, a most responsible committee of the Arts...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Council (New Activities Committee) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The Arts Council will shortly be considering a report which is being prepared by the New Activities Committee. Action on the report is a matter for the Council. I reiterate that young artists have been brought in to have a say. Any evidence they give or suggestions they make go to responsible panels and committees and finally to the Arts Council. Public money is not involved unless, after...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Council (New Activities Committee) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: I am grateful for this opportunity to make the position clear. It is too bad when certain irresponsible elements of the Press print material that is wrong and, when informed by the Chairman of the Arts Council that they are wrong and are offered an article by him to put the facts right, refuse to print that article. I am, therefore, grateful for this opportunity to get the matter in perspective.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Council (New Activities Committee) ( 9 Apr 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: My hon. Friend makes a good point because there is nothing really new about being young, rebellious, wanton or wanting to do experimental things. I do not think that there has ever been a period in history when the more sedate and established forms of art and art patron have quite understood what was happening among the younger generation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: National Films Archive ( 5 Mar 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The Government are providing next year an extra £22,750 for the duplication of nitrate film and £29,000 for four new storage vaults. The Television Fund is giving a grant of £30,000 to the Archive over three years for the purchase of selected Independent Television programmes. This is all progress in the right direction and I hope that the film industry will continue, and increase, its...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: National Films Archive ( 5 Mar 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The hon. Gentleman has stated a personal view and this is, of course, a matter of priorities. We are moving in the right direction. The Government have provided more help in this respect than ever before. I believe that relations between the commercial film industry and the State-subsidised part of it are improving and that all of this will have an effect on the Archive.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: The Arts ( 5 Mar 1970)

Miss Jennie Lee: The Institute of Municipal Entertainment expects to publish this summer a survey of municipal support for entertainment in the financial year 1968–69. This should provide extremely valuable information about local authorities' support for the arts. The Arts Council is also working with the regional arts associations in building up a picture of support for the arts in the regions.
