But the crisis in the arts is the result of almost six years of "stand- still funding". In this debilitating situation, all arts organisations are struggling to survive. I am concerned that, were the Chancellor to implement this measure, he might think the arts issue solved. Inevitably the big metropolitan companies would be much better placed to attract private tax-free donations than smaller companies.
Surely then, we must continue to ask for a solution to the whole problem of under-funding which is nationwide.
