§ 61. Mr. Galbraith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has yet decided what special sum will be made available to Edinburgh for the construction of a sports centre and swimming pool in connection with the Commonwealth Games to be held in that city in 1970.
§ Mr. Ross
I am glad to say that, subject to the authorisation of the necessary funds by Parliament, the Government will be prepared to make a grant of £750,000 towards the cost of the sports centre and stadium at Meadowbank estimated to cost £2.2 million. Grant towards the swimming pool would not be justified.
