Arts Speech

Asked for more detail on the Prime Minister’s arts speech, the PMOS replied that it was a speech on the arts and would follow the seminar held by the Prime Minister last week on the same subject. This was one of the Prime Minister’s "Our Nation’s Future" speeches.

Asked that despite being one of the "Our Nation’s Future" speeches, would this speech be focusing on the arts, the PMOS replied that it would. Just as the Prime Minister had made speeches on welfare reform, defence, and foreign policy, so this was an overview speech that would look at the place of the arts in society in general.

Asked if we had said how many "Our Nation’s Future" speeches there would be, the PMOS replied that we had not.

Asked why the arts was chosen as a subject for the speech, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister believed that the arts was an important part of our culture, reflected the diversity of our society, and was something that was undergoing a transformation. It, genuinely, was one of the treasures of this nation, but was one that had to keep developing, and Government support for the arts had to keep pace with that development.
