Olympic Games: China

Volume 476: debated on Monday 19 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many people from the Youth Sport Trust will attend the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in whole or in part; and at what cost. (205746)

[holding answer 15 May 2008]: The Department funds the Youth Sport Trust to help manage and deliver the PE and Sport Strategy for Young People, as well as programmes to raise standards through sport. This funding would not support any international visits. Subject to that condition, attendance at the Beijing Olympic Games is a matter for the Youth Sport Trust to consider.
