§ Mr. Simon Coombs
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services how much his Department spent, in each of the last three years for which figures are available, on the promotion of swimming as a form of healthy exercise.
§ Mrs. Currie
The promotion of swimming is not funded by the Department. The Health Education Authority includes swimming in its promotion of exercise as one aspect of a healthier way of life. It is not possible to quantify the cost of this separately.
