§ 55. Mr. Lovat-Fraser
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that a strong feeling exists in favour of including the mother and pre-school child in the physical fitness schemes; and whether he will consider the desirability of doing this?
§ Sir K. Wood
The Physical Training and Recreation Bill at present before Parliament will enable facilities to be provided which will be available for all classes of the population. I may add that I have recently drawn the attention of local authorities to further steps which should be taken for the benefit of the classes referred to, and I will send my hon. Friend copies of the circulars I have sent out.
§ Mr. J. J. Davidson
Does the right hon. Gentleman think that those physical fitness schemes will in any way benefit the people of the country where conditions operating in accordance with the answer to the previous question exist?
