Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what steps he is taking to ensure adequate funding for adult fitness classes in colleges. (92402)

The Government remain committed to lifelong learning for its own intrinsic value. We have allocated through the Learning and Skills Council £210 million per annum in 2006/07 and 2007/08 to safeguard learning for personal and community development. This includes fitness classes. LSC providers, including both local authorities and colleges, have access to this budget with allocations made in the light of local needs and the quality of provision.
