97. Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism if he has put in place a new fund to support the development of community facilities; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [31458/04]
Mr. O’Donoghue Mr. O’Donoghue
Mr. O’Donoghue: The Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism administers two capital grants schemes towards the provision of community sports facilities. Under the sports capital programme funding is allocated to organisations and clubs to assist them in the provision of sports facilities, while under the local authority swimming pool programme grants are available to local authorities towards the cost of building and refurbishment of swimming pools. The proposed community facilities fund to support the development of facilities not covered by existing schemes, as set out in An Agreed Programme for Government, will be created under the local government fund, which is the responsibility of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.
