HC Deb 25 October 1999 vol 336 cc755-6W
Mr. Spring

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions he has had with the DfEE about the state of sport and physical education participation in schools, with particular reference to Ofsted inspections. [95209]

Kate Hoey

DCMS Ministers meet and have regular contact with their colleagues at DfEE to discuss a range of education issues, including PE and sport in schools. This topic is of particular importance at present, as we prepare our sports strategy paper. I recently met Chris Woodhead of Ofsted to discuss school inspections.
