HC Deb 11 March 1991 vol 187 c343W
Mr. Anthony Coombs

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what arrangements he has made for continuing the payment of Government grant-in-aid to the Sports Council.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

[pursuant to his reply, 30 January 1991, c. 511]: Parliamentary approval for my Department to make grant-in aid to the Sports Council will be sought in a spring supplementary estimate for the schools, research and miscellaneous services vote—class XI, vote 1. This will provide for expenditure of £1 million in addition to £14,161,000 transferred from the Department of the Environment for the last quarter of 1990–91. The additional expenditure will be offset by a saving elsewhere on the vote. Pending Parliament's approval, urgent expenditure against this additional £1 million will be met by repayable advance from the Contingencies Fund.
