HC Deb 25 July 1969 vol 787 c510W
Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why he refused to grant-aid the Ullesthorpe Playing Fields Association Scheme this year.

Mr. Denis Howell

Applications for local capital grants under the Physical Training and Recreation Act, 1937, are subject to a priority scheme operated by Regional Sports Councils. This application did not receive sufficient priority in relation to the funds available.
