Matters Arising from the Open Minutes of the Business and Culture Committee held on Tuesday 7 July 2020

Minutes:

Councillor McCann referred to minute reference BC89/20: Economic Recovery.  He emphasised the need to ensure that the £33m support package was allocated to cultural/arts organisations and not specifically to large venues.

 

                        The Chair advised that a positive response had been received from the Minister of Culture who stated that he was waiting on a response from the Finance Minister regarding the specific funding allocation.

 

                        Councillor Cooper indicated that the Minister of Culture was well informed of the organisations that required funding provision and therefore he would have no hesitation that the money would be allocated fairly amongst cultural/arts organisations throughout the City and District.
