§ Mr. Nigel Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what proposals are in hand for the review of the sports councils; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Banks
Further to my right hon. Friend's speech during the "Sport for All" debate on 27 June 1997, column 1061, I can confirm that he is currently considering a number of possible changes to the way in which the present sports council structures are working. A further announcement will be made in due course.
