§ 13. Mr. John Carlisle
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he is considering further initiatives to promote the coaching of cricket in schools.
§ Mr. Atkins
I am very keen to encourage cricket in schools both within the curriculum and as part of extra-curricular sport. I am today holding a conference on "Sport and Young People" to which a wide range of physical education and sporting organisations have been invited. Many useful and interesting issues are being raised and I will be considering these further as part of my current review of sports policy.
