As set out in the audited Resource Accounts of the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure for the year ended 31 March 2004, £96.6 million was expended by the Department during 2003–04, representing a per capita spend of £57.30 based on the population of 1.685 million recorded on Census day 2001.

The hon. Gentleman will be aware that a range of cultural, arts and leisure activities or amenities are funded by various NI government departments, but it is not practical to identify an exhaustive list to provide an all-inclusive figure.
