Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what recent discussions she has had with the Department for Education and Skills on increasing the time spent on sport in schools. [124489]

Mr. Caborn

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State meets regularly with her right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Skills to discuss issues of mutual concern. These include the Public Service Agreement Target, shared by both departments, to enhance the take-up of sporting opportunities by 5 to 16-year-olds by increasing the percentage of school children who spend a minimum of two hours each week on high-quality PE and school sport within and beyond the curriculum from 25 per cent. in 2002 to 75 per cent. by 2006.
