HC Deb 18 November 1969 vol 791 cc289-90W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many local authorities refused to support "Learn to Swim Week", sponsored by his Department in Scotland in 1969; and how many have, to date, intimated support for 1970.

Mr. Ross

The degree of local authority participation in this voluntary campaign may vary and it is not possible to say how many have taken no part in it. This year full scale campaigns were held in 42 towns and many other authorities supported the project in various ways.

Next year's campaign is to be held during the week 1st to 6th June. It is too early to say how many local authorities will take part but I hope that as many as possible will arrange to do so.
