HC Deb 17 June 1975 vol 893 c382W
26. Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will issue a circular to local education authorities concerning the provision of facilities for children to learn to swim.

Miss Joan Lestor

No. My Department publishes general advice on the provision of swimming facilities, including safety precautions. But it is for local education authorities to decide what provision needs to be made according to local circumstances.
