Sport: Funding

Volume 686: debated on Monday 30 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What contributions they make to the Governments of Wales and Scotland for spending exclusively on sport in each country; and how these figures compare with the situation before devolution.[HL7685]

Sport is a devolved matter for the devolved Administrations in Scotland and Wales.

The devolved Administrations in Scotland and Wales are funded through the block grant which is determined by the Barnett formula. No allocations are made to the devolved Administrations specifically for sport.

The block grant allows the devolved Administrations to assess their own needs and priorities for all devolved matters.
