Scottish Youth Theatre Funding Written Answer, 9/12/14 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Cara Hilton (Lab) question asking the Scottish Government for what reason Creative Scotland has decided not to provide the Scottish Youth Theatre with regular funding.

The Minister for Local Government and Community Empowerment, Fiona Hyslop replied that these are the decisions for Creative Scotland to make; Scottish Ministers are prevented by legislation from playing any part in their artistic or cultural decision making. Creative Scotland has not made any of their detailed assessments public, having assured applicants that they would not do so. However, individual organisations could choose to publish their own assessments if they wished.

For the full answer to this and other questions see the Scottish Parliament Written Answer Report 9 December 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
