§ Lord Pendry
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What the United Kingdom is contributing in support of the European Year of Education through Sport in 2004. [HL1470]95WA
§ Baroness Ashton of Upholland
The Government welcome the designation of 2004 as the European Year of Education through Sport. The year's aim—to promote and showcase the role sport plays in education—complements our own national PE, school sport and club links strategy in which the Government are investing over £1 billion in England. The United Kingdom's participation in the European Year of Education through Sport was launched on 10 February 2004, via simultaneous events in London, Cardiff, Glasgow and Belfast. The UK EYES website(www.eyes2004.org) provides information on the activities taking place in the United Kingdom and across the European Union.
