Australian Council for the Arts

Mr Fletcher asked the Minister for the Arts, in writing, on 5 February 2013:

Why has the Literature Board of the Australian Council for the Arts cut its annual grant to the magazine Quadrant by 50 per cent?

 

Mr Crean: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Literature Board's decision to fund Quadrant at reduced levels was based on the assessment of its application against the published criteria for Program Funding and in the context of a highly competitive funding round.
