Mr. Andrew Hargreaves

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what budget his Department has set for allocation to the Sports Council for use in the prevention and detection of drugs in sport.

Mr. Atkins

Government grant in aid to the Sports Council for 1990–91 is £43.747 million. The Sports Council allocates this according to its priorities. I understand that it has allocated £600,000 for its drugs testing programme in 1990–91.
