§ 13. Mr. Murray
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what requests he has had from sailing and yachting clubs for financial assistance; and what action he has taken.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
Since January 1964, 33 applications for grant have been received from sailing and yachting clubs. 1858 Twenty-three grants have been made, totalling £44,581. One application has been rejected and nine are under consideration.
§ Mr. Murray
Would my hon. Friend consider whether enough publicity is given to the fact that grants are available, particularly as sailing and yachting on the Thames in the Gravesend area has a great local appeal?
§ Mr. Howell
Not for the next six months.
