HC Deb 08 March 2004 vol 418 c1293W
10. Mrs. Calton

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will make a statement on her Department's progress on her Public Service Agreement target to enhance the take-up of sporting opportunities by five to 16-year-olds. [158925]

Mr. Caborn

Data on the number of pupils who choose to take up the entitlement to two hours each week of high-quality PE and school sport within and beyond the curriculum are currently being collected for the first time. The results will be published in April.

Initial findings from Phase 1 School Sport Partnerships, published last week, provide compelling evidence of the difference that School Sport Partnerships are making.
