HC Deb 21 April 1998 vol 310 c565W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what support, indicating separately financial assistance for(a) travel, (b) equipment and (c) training, is given to individuals who represent England and Wales in kickboxing; what plans there are to increase such support, with particular reference to the National Lottery; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Banks

The United Kingdom and Home Country Sports Councils, through whom Government support for sport is primarily channelled, do not provide financial support to kickboxing, and have no current plans to do so.

As independent bodies, established by Royal Charter, it is for the Sports Councils to decide which activities and organisations should be eligible for support, including funding from the National Lottery
