HC Deb 03 August 1961 vol 645 c224W
88. Mr. Denis Howell

asked the Minister of Education if he is aware of the financial difficulties which prevent the Amateur Volleyball Association of Great Britain from entering the 1964 Olympic Games; and if he will make a grant to the Association under the physical training and recreation scheme.

Sir D. Eccles

The Association has made no approach to me. I am advised that I have no power under the Physical Training and Recreation Act, 1937, to give it a grant towards the cost of sending representatives to the 1964 Olympic Games.
