Volume 705: debated on Monday 17 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have consulted or intend to consult the Swimming Forum on their free swimming initiative. [HL6079]

The Government designed the free swimming programme in close consultation with a range of stakeholders including the Amateur Swimming Association and Sport England, both of which are members of the Swimming Forum.

The Government have not consulted the Swimming Forum itself. However, the forum has written to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, giving its support to the programme.
