HC Deb 08 July 1981 vol 8 c146W
Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science which local education authorities have made cutbacks in swimming curricula within the last 12 months; and which have completely eliminated swimming from their curricula.

Dr. Boyson

Her Majesty's inspectors noted in their report on the effect of local authority expenditure policies published earlier this year that there had been a reduction in the provision for swimming in some schools, but detailed information in the form requested is not available.
