HC Deb 16 November 1966 vol 736 c141W
Mr. Barnett

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will give the amounts of grants made to amateur sports organisations in Heywood in each of the last five years; and what were the amounts in the same period for Royton, Crompton, Milnrow, Wardle, Littlebotough, Whitworth, the county of Lancashire, and the whole of the country, respectively.

Mr. Denis Howell

So far as can be traced no application for capital grant under the Physical Training and Recreation Act, 1937, has been submitted by a voluntary sports organisation in any of the seven districts mentioned.

Following are the amounts paid out in grant in the administrative county of Lancashire and in England and Wales as a whole for the last five financial years.
