HL Deb 08 November 2004 vol 666 c63WA
Lord Moynihan

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What was the reason for the £18,203,000 underspend by Sport England identified within the Department for Culture, Media and Sport's Resource Accounts 2003–04. [HL4677]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

The underspend relates to the Community Club Development Programme. As this is a capital programme, although the £20 million funding in 2003–04 was fully committed to recipients during the 2003–04 financial year, it will be drawn down as recipients need it. The balance of the money is expected to be distributed during this financial year.
