Funding Boost For Jersey's Arts and Heritage

The government has committed to increasing funding for local arts, heritage and culture by 2022.

It will go up to 1% in the next Government Plan after States members approved Deputy Montfort Tadier's proposition by 27 votes to 15.

Based on 2016 figures, the increase would amount to an extra £2.3 million.

It followed an impassioned debate in the States Assembly lasting several hours on Friday:
