Lord Moynihan

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their marketing budget for encouraging sports clubs to apply for community amateur sports club status. [HL1977]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

Neither the Department for Culture, Media and Sport nor the Inland Revenue has a defined marketing budget for this purpose.

(e) Sunderland Metropolitan Borough Council. [HL1924]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

The table shows how much lottery funding went to each local authority area for sport in each calendar year from 1995. These numbers are derived from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport's database of lottery awards, which is based on information supplied by the 'lottery distributing bodies.

Last autumn, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Inland Revenue organised, with the assistance of the Central Council of Physical Recreation, Deloitte & Touche and Bates, Wells & Braithwaite a series of regional seminars for sports clubs, that promoted awareness of, and provided advice about, the community amateur sports club scheme. Over 700 representatives from sports clubs, sports governing bodies and local authorities attended these seminars.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the Inland Revenue and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister continue to promote the scheme through engagement with the sporting national governing bodies and local authorities.
