HC Deb 19 February 1996 vol 272 c17W
Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the Prime Minister if he will make it his policy that every Government Department should produce proposals to ensure that the public and private sectors are able to encourage and, where necessary, provide a wide range of out-of-school activities for 10 to 16-year-olds; and if he will make a statement. [15482]

The Prime Minister

The public and private sectors are already free to encourage or provide out-of-school activities and schools are free to use them, or not, as they wish.
