To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will discuss with Sport England making the Institute of Groundsmanship a national partner; and if he will make a statement. (223467)

[holding answer 15 September 2008]: Sport England has advised that the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) is one of several membership organisations who play a role in providing a range of services to the sporting landscape. The IOG has relationships with a number of national governing bodies but not with Sport England. Sport England has advised that it has no plans at present to increase the number of national partners that it supports.
