Swimming Teachers' Association

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will consult the Swimming Teachers Association when drawing up the new Whole Sport Plans; and if he will make a statement. (256192)

The Amateur Swimming Association (ASA), as the National Governing Body of swimming, has been responsible for drawing up a plan in the best interests of swimming as a whole. Sport England have worked in close conjunction with the ASA throughout this process to ensure the plan serves the whole sport.

My officials recently met the Swimming Teachers’ Association to discuss future work and policy initiatives concerning the Free Swimming programme, and took this opportunity to discuss their role more widely.
