HC Deb 12 February 2004 vol 417 cc1582-3W
20 Mr. Gardiner

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how he will assess whether his target that 75 per cent. of all five to 16-year-olds should spend at least two hours a week engaged in physical education and school sport by 2006 has been met. [154529]

Mr. Stephen Twigg

Data are now being collected for the first time—for publication in April—on the number of pupils who choose to take up the entitlement to two hours of high-quality PE and school sport each week within and beyond the curriculum. This exercise will be repeated in future years so that performance against the PSA target can be assessed.
