Question

The William Morris Gallery in Waltham Forest was recently crowned as the Arts Fund's Museum of the Year. This is testament to the hard work of the museum's staff and the Council's efforts to secure investment - including £1.5 million of the Council's own money - for refurbishing the gallery. Does the Mayor agree that the success of the William Morris Gallery demonstrates the importance of local authority support for arts & culture and will he encourage other London boroughs to follow Waltham Forest's example?
