That this House values the benefits of theatre for audiences, communities and the economy; believes that regional repertory theatres are an important pillar of UK theatre; is concerned at the severe reduction in subsidised repertory theatre in-house productions and that the minimum wage in the theatre sector is just £352 per week for performers; supports Equity's Manifesto for Theatre campaign which includes a call for an end to low wages and for the Arts Council to set minimum levels of in-house production and maximum levels for the proportion of grant spent on administration; and urges the Government to ensure secure funding for the arts.
