A list of the eligible applications to the Arts Council in the last three years in the sub-art form “Brass and Silver bands” will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses. However, some activity for which brass bands play a constituent part may not be included, as the wider activity has not been classified specifically as such. Ineligible applications are not recorded by sub-art form.
