§ Mr. Jim Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what discussions she has had with the Secretary of State for Health regarding a campaign to encourage people to take up exercise. 
§ Mr. Sproat
[holding answer 26 February 1997]: Both our Departments were members of the Government's physical activity task force, whose recommendations led to the launch of the Active for Life Campaign, which encourages people to take up exercise. I am particularly keen to ensure good exercise habits are instilled from an early age, through our initiatives to promote sport in schools.
