To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what progress the Government have made in the promotion and funding of youth sports. [113835]

Mr. Caborn

We are making excellent progress. We are investing over £1 billion in physical education and school sport over the next three years. As a result of this investment, 75 per cent, of schoolchildren will be spending a minimum of two hours each week on high quality physical education and school sport within and beyond the curriculum by 2006.
