HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 cc383-4W
Mr. Carlisle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the scheme for the provision of grants to sports clubs for the improvement of sporting facilities has been stopped, or in any way curtailed, by the Government's policy of slowing down the rate of expenditure on capital goods.

Mr. Crosland

Building projects at sports clubs are not exempt from the restrictions announced by my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer. It is not yet possible to determine the precise effect of the measures on building or on capital grants paid by my Department but there will be some delay in both.
