FST submission to the Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee: Pre-budget scrutiny for 2024-25.

In preparing for this submission, we convened several focus groups with FST members, resulting in detailed discussions about the current situation and the future for the performing arts in Scotland. This submission builds on our previous submissions, made in September 2021 and October 2022, as well as our letter to John Swinney, then acting Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy in January 2023.
