A Committee of the Department of Education, Arts and Science, chaired by Chris de Bruyn. It was appointed in 1961 to investigate the financial and organisational problems encountered by the embattled National Theatre Organisation (NTO). The committee consisted of**, and heard evidence from a wide range of people and institutions, including the management of NTO. Though their report was never published, the reccommendations were that (a) NTO wind up its business in 1962 and (b) that it be replaced by four povincial performing arts councils in 1963. (See also National Theatre Organisation and Performing Arts Councils.) (Stead, 1985b, *)
