Grassroots Funding

Request

We are conducting an investigation into spending on grassroots sport from 2007 to 2013 and
I wondered if you'd be able to give me the following figures

- How much was the council sport budget for every year 2007,
2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013

- Of this how much was spent on grassroots sport?

I'm looking for funding outside of any Sport England funding. I'd like to know how much was spent from council budgets.
