Sport: Governing Bodies

Volume 687: debated on Tuesday 5 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they intend to move both UK Sport and Sport England out of London in line with their Olympic regions and nations policy. [HL306]

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have plans to amalgamate UK Sport and Sport England; and, if so, whether they will channel the savings generated direct to sport and recreation provision. [HL307]

We have no plans to amalgamate UK Sport and Sport England. UK Sport is responsible for delivering success in high-performance sport and developing elite athletes, and Sport England is responsible for encouraging greater participation in community sport.
