To ask His Majesty's Government whether they will release the funding for football stadia in Northern Ireland on a sub-regional basis in advance of the re-establishment of a Northern Ireland Executive; and whether the amount of funding will be increased to reflect inflationary pressures since the funding was announced in 2011.

Sports policy is a devolved matter, and the allocation of funding for stadia is a matter for the Department for Communities in Northern Ireland.

It remains the UK Government’s firm view that the right people to make these decisions are locally elected politicians in a fully functioning Northern Ireland Executive and Assembly.
