Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport)

A new round of the Sports Capital Programme (SCP) was launched on 28th March 2012. The deadline for receipt of applications was 11 May for paper-based applications and 1 June for applications made online. The process of assessing applications will take some time, due to the volume of applications and the detailed information contained in each one. As a result, I do not expect to be in a position to announce the list of successful applicants before the late autumn or early winter 2012.
