The Taking Part survey was commissioned by DCMS and partner NDPBs in 2005 as a continuous annual survey. The fourth year of data, 2008-09, was released in August 2009.

National Lottery: Pay

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the pro-rata full-time salary of the chief executive of each of the Lottery distributors was in 2008-09. [295321]

Mr. Simon: The requested information can be found in the annual reports and accounts for the public bodies concerned, copies of which are available from the House Library.

Pay Television

Mr. Andy Reed: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when he plans to respond to phase 3 of Ofcom's consultation on pay television; and if he will make a statement. [295351]

Mr. Simon: I have no plans to respond to Ofcom's 'Pay TV-phase 3 consultation' which closed on 18 September. Ofcom's Pay TV market investigation is a competition consideration and therefore is primarily a matter for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

Sport England: Finance

Mr. Hunt: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much of Sport England's £10 million Sustainable Facilities Fund has been spent in 2009-10; and what projects have received such funding. [294785]

Mr. Sutcliffe [holding answer 22 October 2009]: Sport England's Sustainable Facilities Fund invests in modern community facility projects that are viable in the long term-partnerships between public, private and commercial organisations with sustainable revenue funding to maintain high standards of facility provision and customer service.

The fund invests close to £10 million a year of lottery and Exchequer money into innovative projects capable of transforming the places where we play or take part in sport as part of our aim to create a world-leading community sport system of clubs, coaches, facilities and volunteers.

Sport England has recently announced the first round of funding for seven awards through the Sustainable Facilities Fund, totalling £6,869,000. The details of these awards can be found in the following table. In addition to this, Sport England has invited a further four applicants to bid for stage two development awards, which will be announced later in the year.

Swimming: Derbyshire

Natascha Engel: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many people in (a) Derbyshire and (b) North East Derbyshire have participated in the scheme for free swimming for people over 60 years old. [294760]

Mr. Sutcliffe: The following table shows the total number of free swims that have taken place under the free swimming scheme by people aged 60 and over across the Derbyshire and North East Derbyshire areas in a given time period (April/May/June/Q1 total). This is not a measure of the total number of individual participants taking part in free swimming, as the Department does not hold these figures.
