I Podcast on significant changes to the Coalition Government’s public bodies. The ‘bonfire of the quangos’ has begun, with Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt announcing that 16 of the 55 public bodies under the DCMS remit will be merged, streamlined or abolished.

The changes will be significant for applied arts, with the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council set to be abolished in 2012. According to Hunt, government support for the sector will continue, with many of the MLA’s functions being transferred to other departments, namely the Arts Council.
