English Sports Council: Finance

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 23 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much of Sport England’s annual budget for 2008-09 has been reserved for future partnership schemes with his Department. (199843)

Sport England will contribute at least £600,000 to part fund the Taking Part Survey commissioned by the Department and its key non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs), £36,000 towards a joint research budget for the Department and its NDPBs, and £25,000 towards the administration of the Living Places Partnership, an agreement between the Department for Communities and Local Government, the Department and its partner NDPBs and the Academy for Sustainable Communities, to ensure that all communities can benefit from cultural and sporting opportunities.

Sport England is still considering whether a contribution will be made to the Improvement and Development Agency for local government (IDeA) for the coming year. Sport England will agree its overall strategy in May 2008.

The exact figures will be available once their 2008-09 budget has been set.
