The Culture, Media and Sport Committee holds the final evidence session of its Countries of Culture inquiry.
Wednesday 2 November 2016, Grimond Room, Portcullis House
Purpose of the session
This inquiry was launched in March and is looking at ways to preserve and promote the UK’s cultural wealth.
Britain has a rich and varied cultural offering, but in recent years there has been some debate about whether this cultural capital is too heavily concentrated in London, and concerns that local authority budget cuts are constraining the cultural offering in the regions. The Committee has examined these issues in evidence sessions with national, regional and local cultural institutions from across the country. In the final evidence session for this inquiry, the Committee will question the new Minister for Culture, Matt Hancock.
