§ Mr. Pendry
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what information he has on the reasons the London schools athletic championships did not take place this year; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Atkins
I have received no representations on this issue. However, I understand that the London schools athletic championships were not held this year because the schools involved were unable to make the necessary commitment to this event. As a result, the London Schools Athletic Association has decided to organise next year's championships on an inter-borough basis.
