HC Deb 25 March 2002 vol 382 c575W
Bob Russell

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when she expects the register of sports facilities will be published; how this will be funded; and if she will make a statement. [45167]

Mr. Caborn

Information on sports facilities is currently held by a variety of organisations and a single database will enable more strategic Government investment in those areas and facilities which are most important. My Department is continuing discussions with Sport England on the scope, content, and cost of the proposed database and how the project will be taken forward. We will then be in a position to draw up a realistic timetable for the project.
