Sports: Energy

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 14 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many sports buildings which receive funding from his Department use heat generated by (a) solar panels and (b) ground source heat pumps. (292015)

The Department primarily channels its sports funding through two main distributors, Sport England and UK Sport.

Due to the widespread nature of the estates covered by these two bodies it is not possible to provide detail at the level requested without incurring disproportionate cost. DCMS and our NDPBs are keen to ensure that estates are maintained on a sustainable basis.
