HC Deb 26 March 1975 vol 889 cc162-3W
Mr. Macfarlane

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what advice he has given to the Sports Council following the announcement in July 1974 that the embargo on grant-aiding local sports clubs was to be lifted; and how much additional finance has been made available to local sports clubs as a result of the announcement;

(2) what additional finance has been offered to local clubs to implement the sports youth programme; and if he will list the clubs, with amounts of money.

Mr. Denis Howell

The question of grants to clubs is a matter entirely within the responsibility of the Sports Council.
