Olympic Games: Winter 2010

Volume 690: debated on Monday 19 March 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much of the £600 million six-year programme of support to Olympic athletes announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the 2006 Budget will fund the winter Olympians in the run-up to the Vancouver Games in 2010. [HL2524]

A total of £6 million of UK Sport's total world-class pathway programme investment has been allocated to fund and support our winter Olympic and Paralympic ambitions through to Vancouver 2010. This investment is separate from the investment announced to support summer Olympic and Paralympic sport through to 2012. In addition, between 30 and 40 TASS scholarships of up to £10,000 each are currently being finalised with winter sport athletes for the year 2007-08.
