HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 c285W
Mr. Macfarlane

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if the recent increase in the grant to the Sports Council applies solely for the remainder of the current financial year; and if the grants for 1979–80 and 1980–81 will be increased at the same rate.

Mr. Denis Howell

The increase that I announced recently is for the current financial year. The level of grant-in-aid for 1979–80 has yet to be decided.
