HC Deb 05 May 1971 vol 816 c378W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what changes have been made in the level of grant payable to national sporting organisations to assist in travelling expenses of teams sent to international competitions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

The total sum available has been increased. The Sports Council has recommended that except in special cases grants should not exceed 50 per cent. of approved travel costs. This will enable more British teams to take part in international events.
