To ask the Secretary of State for National Heriage what grants from public funds have been made to the sport of angling since April 1991.

Most of my Department's funding for sport is made through the Sports Council. In 1991–92 it paid grant of £71,749 to angling bodies, including £20,660 to the National Angling Council which was disbanded at the end of that year. In 1992–93 grant paid by the Sports Council to angling's remaining governing bodies was £46,800.
