§ 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 163W 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.
