To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions she has had with Sport England regarding the closure of Buckmore Park scout centre; and if she will make a statement. [111086]

I understand that Sport England has been involved in discussions with all the interested parties in an attempt to ensure that the centre continues in operation. An action plan was agreed by all the parties which set out a series of steps to be completed. Once these have been done, Sport England believes that it will be possible to progress new arrangements for the management of the centre.
