HC Deb 21 May 1974 vol 874 cc126-7W
Mr. Normanton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his policy towards the implementation of the recommendations contained in the House of Lords Select Committee on Sport and Leisure; and what steps have been taken in that regard.

Mr. Denis Howell

Many of the recommendations of these very useful reports are of course directed to local authorities and national agencies and I am sure they have found much value in them. As for those recommendations of Government concern, my Department has the major interest in matters of sport and leisure, and I am preparing a statement of policy which will be published during the summer.
