Question S1W-34326

To ask the Scottish Executive what information it has received about why the United Kingdom entry in the listing of national websites in the European Culture Portal in the European Commission’s area of the Europa website gives links only to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Arts Council for England and what role each of these bodies plays in promoting Scottish culture in Europe.

The Scottish Executive is investigating further the possibilities for establishment of a direct weblink to its site from the national website section within the European Culture Portal. Sport and art are devolved matters. Whilst the Executive takes responsibility for promoting Scottish culture both at home and abroad, in practice there are a number of bilateral links, at both ministerial and official level, with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Arts Council for England.
