Mr. Box

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what arrangements he has made, following his official discussions with the swimming associations and television authorities, for the holding and televising of swimming contests at the Empire Pool, Cardiff; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Denis Howell

I am glad to inform the House that, with the goodwill of all parties, this contest will now be televised in the United Kingdom. The Friday evening events will be handled by B.B.C.: the Saturday afternoon programme by I.T.V. The arrangement has the concurrence of the English and the Welsh Amateur Swimming Associations.
