HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 cc100-1W
48. Mr. Kenneth Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the extent of the co-operation he is receiving from local authorities in making school playing fields available for use for outside sports activity out of school hours.

Mr. Denis Howell

Regional Sports Councils are carrying out surveys of sports facilities in their areas and are paying special attention to dual use. According to my present information the majority of authorities have arrangements for out of school use of playing fields.
