Law attacks NYMT funding cuts

Jude Law has written to The Times protesting about the failure of the Arts Council to award a £100,000 grant to the National Youth Music Theatre, reports BBC News.
[NYMT]chairman Maggie Semple said an Arts Council-commissioned review initially recommended a "substantial" award for the company.

"They encouraged us to go through this lengthy process," she said. "They commissioned this report, and at the end of all that, 14 months later, they're now saying 'no'."

"If they had told us nine or even six months ago we wouldn't have made the plans that we have," Ms Semple added. "They have irresponsibly led us along."
