To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps the Government are taking to promote England's bid to host the World Cup in 2006. [14981]

I have just returned from accompanying an FA delegation to North and Central America to promote the World Cup bid. The trip was very successful and the Government will continue to offer all the support they can to the FA. I will shortly be writing to hon. Members giving full details and exhorting them to use every opportunity to back the bid.
