HC Deb 01 March 1994 vol 238 cc686-7W
18. Ms Hoey

To ask the Secretary of State for Education how many hours of physical education he intends there to be in primary and secondary schools.

Mr. Robin Squire

This is a matter for head teachers and school governors to determine. My right hon. Friend is prohibited in law from prescribing how much time should be spent on physical education or any other national curriculum subject.
