To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans she has to fund arts and sports activities for young people in the school summer holidays. [113845]

My Department is working with other Government Departments and agencies to deliver a programme of positive activities for children and young people during the summer and other school holidays. The programme builds on the success of last year's Summer Splash and Summer Plus schemes, and aims to reduce youth offending, encourage children and young people to return to education or training and build community cohesions. The type of activities will vary according to local need, but will include arts and sports.
