Sports: Capital Investment

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much capital has been allocated to evening sports clubs for young people in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) England in each year since 1997. (187067)

Funding is allocated by DCMS for Capital Projects throughout England, but no records are kept by DCMS or Funding Distributors (NDPBs) on what purpose building projects that benefit from this funding are used for. It is therefore not possible to provide an answer to this question.

Figures given prior to 2001-02 are lottery only as Sport England advises that it is not possible to provide the requested information for Exchequer funding back to 1997. This is because they changed their budget management software at the start of 2001-02 and they do not have information before that date readily available.
