HC Deb 20 December 1979 vol 976 c403W
Mr. McElhone

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what grant was paid to the Scottish Sports Council for the years 1978 and 1979; and what is the estimated amount for 1980.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

Grant-in-aid for 1978–79 and 1979–80 was £2.5 million and £2.8 million respectively. Estimates for1980–81 are still under consideration, but I have told the council that its grant next year is likely to be at the same level as this year in real terms.
