Lottery money could go to fund music tuition in schools, Chris Smith disclosed yesterday.

The Secretary of State wanted to see lottery cash supporting music teaching in state schools, he said, and this could be one of the changes to the lottery resulting from the review at present underway.

He anticipated the establishment of a Music In Schools Trust which helped to buy musical instruments and provide tuition. Mr Smith also said he wanted to see a move in the way lottery cash was used in the arts away from the funding of buildings to funding of people and projects.
