answer text <p>DCMS directly supports 15 museums and galleries, comprising 37 sites across the country, with grant-in-aid funding. The Ministry of Defence supports three service museums with grant-in-aid. In addition to this, there are around 2500 museums in England, 1,322 of which are accredited, which do not receive grant-in-aid but are supported by government by at least one of 16 different sources of public funding worth over £800 million per year, as outlined in the Mendoza Review: an independent review of museums in England published in November 2017. This includes the Arts Council England, an arm’s-length body of the department, which is the development agency for museums in England and supports museums in several ways including through its National Portfolio programme. Around half of the Accredited sector in England is independent museums with varied sources of income.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Pool Betting Duty extends beyond the Football Pools to bets made not at fixed odds (other than horse or dog racing). This means that a range of products are currently subject to the Duty and there is potential for products to be developed in future to come within its scope in order to benefit from a lower rate.</p> more like this
