HC Deb 04 February 1976 vol 904 c652W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to be able to inform Birmingham City Council of the level of financial assistance available for the proposed staging of the Commonwealth Games in 1982.

Mr. Denis Howell

I am giving this matter urgent consideration and intend that the city council should be informed as soon as possible of the grant that the Sports Council will be able to offer after consultation with Her Majesty's Government.
