Convenor: David James
1- The Tories want to push the "American" system of corporate sponsorship/patronage. How do we ensure that this is a partner (Vs a replacement) for Government funding?
2- MPs (from any party) DO want to know how/what is being funded in their patch (ACE, LA, Corporate etc). Who will tell them?
These can be used to lobby for further support- or point out areas of weakness
3- Many parliamentary 'groups' (football, beer, to cite obvious cases) are corporately funded. How can we appeal to parliamentarians to get them more actively involved and passionate about the arts?
