Creative Connexions brief and budget

John Robertson made this Freedom of Information request to London Development Agency

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

London Development Agency did not have the information requested.

Dear Sir or Madam,
What is the LDA Budget for Creative Connexions?
What budget headings have they provided to justify it and their other government funding?
What safegards prevent money intended to promote export of design skills being used in fact to promote out-sourcing of production from the UK and democratic countries to autocratic countries and China?
Yours faithfully,

John Robertson

PS I read from the Creative Connexions web site
"The staff at the LDA’s offices in Beijing, China aim to promote London to the local market and consumers. Beijing is China's political, cultural and international exchange centre, and home to the country’s central bank and other large-scale national financial and insurance institutions."
