UK School Games: Finance

Volume 494: debated on Monday 22 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport by what means the UK School Games has been funded in each of its first three years; and how it will be funded in each year to 2012. (279840)

[holding answer 15 June 2009]: Since the inaugural UK School Games took place in 2006, funding for the annual event has come from a mixture of Exchequer, lottery, private sponsorship and host city money. The UK School Games runs until the end of the current spending period 2011, and we envisage that this funding arrangement will continue until then. Plans for the Games beyond 2011 have not been considered.
