To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions she has had with television and press organisations about increasing positive media coverage of women's sport. [113664]

I have had no formal discussions on this issue. However, UK Sport is actively lobbying to make the media more aware of women's sport. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and Sport England are leading by example, through ensuring that all internal publications give men and women equal coverage. I also met Helen Donohue at the Women's Sports Foundation to discuss general issues involving women's sport.
