HC Deb 03 May 1972 vol 836 cc150-1W
64. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what capital grants have been made to sporting organisations in the Manchester area during 1971 and 1972; and what grants have so far been approved for the rest of 1972.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths:

Only five applications were received from sports associations in the City of Manchester in the period January, 1971, until 31st March, 1972, when the Sports Council took over responsibility for dealing with capital grants. In three of these cases grant offers have been made. No capital grants were made during 1971; one grant was made in 1972 before 31st March.
