Swimming Teachers' Association

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what consideration he gave to including the Swimming Teachers Association in the range of stakeholders consulted on the Free Swimming Programme. (256191)

The Free Swimming programme was designed in close consultation with Sport England, the Local Government Association, the Chief Cultural and Leisure Officers’ Association and the Amateur Swimming Association (as the national governing body for swimming).

My officials recently met the Swimming Teachers’ Association to discuss future work and policy initiatives concerning the programme. We will continue to involve them in future discussions as appropriate.
