Following the Autumn Statement issued by Chancellor George Osborn last week (December 5th), Alan Davey, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, has confirmed that reductions to the DCMS budget will be passed on to the Arts Council. The organisation will see its 2013/14 grant in aid budgets cut by £3.9 million (1%), and will face a cut of £7.7 million in 2014/15 (2%). These cuts will directly affect the funding available for National Portfolio Organisations.
Writing for the DCMS blog, Culture Secretary Maria Miller acknowledged that the cuts would be “painful”, but writes: “as to those who insisted that ‘our’ world should be immune, I can only point out that DCMS budgets could not be given special protection because the taxpaying public simply wouldn’t accept that doing so was appropriate”.
