Olympic Games: Finance

Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much of the planned World Class Pathway funding for the Beijing Cycle was spent in the 2006-07 financial year, broken down by Olympic sport. (134070)

Between 2006 and 2009, a total of £250.2 million has been budgeted to be invested in the World Class Performance Pathway (WCPP) for Olympic and Paralympic sport, of which a total of £72.5 million was ring fenced to be spent in 2006-07.

The total amount actually invested in Olympic sports for 2006-07 is primarily dependent on the extent to which their World Class Pathway programmes and governance are fit for purpose to receive public funding. The final figures will be available once UK Sport has signed off the audited 2006-07 year-end accounts in June.
