HL Deb 10 June 2002 vol 636 c15WA
Baroness Anelay of St Johns

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Baroness Blackstone on 22 May (WA 106), which Minister took the decision that the United Kingdom would not be represented by a Minister at the World Conference on Women in Sport held in Montreal 16–19 May; why the Minister reached that decision; whether officials attended the conference; and what action they propose to take as a consequence of the proceedings at the conference. [HL4538]

Baroness Blackstone

No Minister was invited to attend the World Conference on Women in Sport in Montreal between 16 and 19 May. Two representatives from the Womens Sports Foundation (WSF) and a representative from UK Sport did attend the conference in Montreal. The WSF representatives have previously met with the Minister for Sport and are meeting again with DCMS officials in the very near future.
