From Ms Seona Reid

Sir: In your feature on the British arts funding system (18 February), David Lister spent two pages talking about the Arts Council (English), the regional arts boards (English) and the Department of National Heritage (English, in terms of arts funding).

Scotland may represent only 9 per cent of the British population, but it makes up for its size with the strength of its cultural identity and its cultural influence. We also have direct rail and air links with London - perhaps Mr Lister should take advantage of them.

Yours sincerely,


Director, Scottish Arts Council
