HC Deb 22 May 1979 vol 967 c78W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with the percentage of spending in the partnership programmes on sport and recreation.

Mr. King

Expenditure on sport and recreation schemes in 1979–80 in partnership programmes represented some 9 per cent. of their total urban programme funds. We will be looking carefully at the resources which can be devoted to the urban programme, and discussing with local authorities the assessment of local needs.
