HC Deb 18 May 1999 vol 331 c326W
Mr. Spring

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions he has had about the provision of boxing in schools with the Secretary of State for Education and Employment. [84230]

Mr. Banks

I meet with my colleagues in DfEE on a regular basis when we discuss a wide range of issues of mutual interest. Our latest discussions centred on sport in general in schools and the national curriculum. However, we have not discussed boxing but remain firmly committed to the encouragement of boxing as a sport.
