Arts Council England: Investment

Question for Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

UIN 72284, tabled on 26 October 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, for what reason the announcement of the Arts Council England investment programme for 2023 to 2026 was delayed.

Answered on

After careful consideration of the potential impact, my Department agreed with ACE to delay the announcement of its 2023-26 investment programme. I can now confirm the new date for the announcement is Friday 4 November and that this has been agreed with ACE.

I recognise that this delay caused some uncertainty for organisations in the short term but I am confident that this will be minimal as the investment programme begins on 1 April 2023.
