HC Deb 03 March 1992 vol 205 c116W
Mr. Denis Howell

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what Government grants have been paid to the cities of Edinburgh, Sheffield and Birmingham in the last 10 years in order to provide sports facilities of international standards; and if he will pay grants to cities providing facilities in connection with the Manchester Olympic bid.

Mr. Atkins

All Government funds for sport in England and Scotland are channeled through the respective sports councils which allocate them according to their policies and priorities. Cities are eligible to apply for grant from existing Government programmes provided normal grant criteria are met.
