Ed Vaizey lets slip go-ahead for CABE merger with Design Council

  • Comment

Culture minister Ed Vaizey has dropped a huge hint that the proposed merger between CABE and the Design Council has been finalised

Delivering a keynote speech at the first London Design Review yesterday (25 January), Vaizey said he was delighted that the Government had effected ‘a secure future for the Design Council and CABE’.

However there has been no official confirmation of the link up between the two bodies nor about the organisational structure following the merger..

Last month the commission and the council confirmed plans to team up as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for design - a move which is set to guarantee CABE’s at least partial survival after the body’s future was thrown into doubt by Government spending cuts last autumn.

More details to follow.
