HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 cc318-9W
Mr. Cordle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will seek to hold discussions with church authorities and religious bodies concerning financial grants to aid youth and club organisations.

Mr. Denis Howell

Exchequer grant is available where a good case is made for it towards the capital cost of voluntary youth clubs, including those sponsored by churches and other religious bodies; the Department is always prepared to offer advice about grant for such projects, and meetings are frequently held with representatives of voluntary organisations.
