23. Mr. Gray

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will make a statement on the Government's plans for local sports clubs. [34252]

Mr. Caborn

Local clubs remain at the heart of the Government's sports strategy. As I outlined in my answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Chorley (Mr. Hoyle),Official Report, 25 February 2002, column 433, DCMS is taking forward work to advance the interests of local clubs as the Government consider the responses to the Treasury consultation document, "Promoting Sport in the Community".
