HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 c88W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will issue advice to secondary schools about informing pupils of the dangers to health of unprotected sex. [52345]

Ms Estelle Morris

All maintained secondary schools are already statutorily required to provide sex education, including education about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. We intend to disseminate existing good practice more widely. We are, with the Department of Health, considering sex and relationships education in the context of the Government's health strategy.
