§ Mr. Hinchliffe
To ask the Secretary of State for Education which code of rugby is included within the required school sports contained within the national curriculum.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
Under the present national curriculum order for physical education, games are mandatory for all pupils from age five to 14. My right hon. Friend has recently published proposals that would extend this requirement to all pupils of compulsory school age. However, individual sports are not prescribed.
