§ Lord Pendry
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will provide extra funding for the implementation of the manifesto for outdoor education to ensure that every pupil can experience outdoor learning, including school visits. [HL1518]
§ Lord Filkin
We are at the early stages of developing a manifesto for "education outside the classroom" and have so far scoped the idea with about 30 non-governmental organisations. We will work and consult with them and with many others to develop a manifesto with real meaning and usefulness for schools and providers. We need to establish the nature and content of a manifesto before making decisions about whether additional implementation funding is needed.
