I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. I welcome the funding from the Government and the national lottery for the sports co-ordinator programme, which is useful in linking local schools and sports clubs. Other associations are also helping to fund the programme. Will my hon. Friend assure me that the programme will be extended as quickly as possible to benefit local areas such as Havering? I am sure that the scheme will prove popular.
