EC Commissioner finds no breach of EC rules after inquiry into Culture and Sport Glasgow

An investigation by the European Competition Commissioner into the creation of a charitable trust to run Scotland's largest civic art collection has found no breach of European Commission rules.

The commission's inquiry into Culture and Sport Glasgow, instigated after claims by a whistleblower, concludes that "there is no convincing evidence for the existence of state aid".

It has also rejected concerns that CSG, formerly Glasgow City Council's culture and leisure services department, would not be covered by the Freedom of Information act.
