HC Deb 03 June 1965 vol 713 c252W
Mr. Woodnutt

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why an application for a Government grant by the British Deaf Amateur Sports Association, towards the cost of sending a team of deaf athletes to Washington to participate in the Tenth International Games for the Deaf from 26th June to 5th July, has been refused.

Mr. Denis Howell

I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave to the right hon. and learned Member for Hertfordshire, East (Sir D. Walker-Smith) on 27th May. As I have said, if the Association have any new evidence which might throw a new light on their application, my right hon. Friend would be willing to have it examined.
