Abolish the Department for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport

Comment 15th July 2010

I propose the abolition of the above department. It has only really existed since the Major government, and is a luxury that this country cannot afford.

Qualifying organisations who have benefited from the largesse of the department can given a tax break to compensate for the loss of grant income. For those who only exist because of handouts, any individual or company who wishes to sponsor a suitable project can be given a tax break in support. This can be administered within the existing structure of HMRC.

Why does this matter?

This is in the interests of saving money, and in the pursuit of small government.

We need a reduction in both the size and number of ministerial departments, and the corresponding number of Ministers.

The department is not mission-critical to either the survival or the prosperity of the country.
