Is there more opportunity to discuss with the Department how this might consolidate the artistic and business management independence? The Arts Council is different because it is a development agency and the National Concert Hall is not such an agency. In a sense, the hall is producing an art product and commissioning art work. As someone who has worked on both sides, including for a Minister, there is scope there for ambiguity. Has that been discussed at the board?
