§ Mr. Boyden
asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science, as representing the Lord President of the Council, what new sporting facilities have been developed by Her Majesty's Government in the North-East since 9th January.
§ Mr. Denzil Freeth
My right hon. Friend the Minister of Education gives grants for sporting facilities both under the Physical Training and Recreation Act, 1937, and to the Youth Service. Approval was given to plans for a £54,000 Sports Centre in Newcastle on 1st January, 1963, and more recently my right hon. Friend has confirmed an offer of a grant towards the cost of erecting a new clubhouse and pavilion at Pickering and paid two small grants in respect of projects at Tynemouth.
