asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware of the decision of the West Riding County Council to restrict school instruction in swimming to children between the ages of 10 and 13 years; and whether this is in accordance with his advice to education authorities.
I am aware of the authority's decision, which I understand was made for reasons of economy. With regard to the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Harrogate (Mr. York), on 19th October last.
