Sport: Women and Girls — Question (7 Mar 2013)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, does my noble friend the Minister agree that developing a sporting habit for life is something that needs to start in primary school? There is a minimal amount of physical education within that sector and teachers of primary school children receive only a meagre six to 10 hours within a one-year training session. Back in the last century, my physical education training took three...

Education: School Leavers — Question (16 Jan 2013)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, is the Minister able to confirm that any future Statements on the school curriculum, including the English Baccalaureate, will include a greater emphasis on the provision of physical education? The current derisory agreement is that there will be a minimum of one hour per week of physical education. The CBI's aspirations that school leavers be grounded and rounded may otherwise have...

Health: Active Lifestyles — Question for Short Debate (17 Dec 2012)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: To ask Her Majesty's Government what action they are taking to highlight the impact on health and well-being of an active lifestyle.

Health: Active Lifestyles — Question for Short Debate (17 Dec 2012)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, I feel a little like a night watchman in the middle of a timeless test. However, as a former PE teacher, sports journalist, ancient retired sportswoman and with both my parents being PE teachers, I know what a positive impact physical activity can have on our well-being. The UK faces serious health challenges. Rising levels of sedentary behaviour put huge pressure on the NHS;...

Protection of Freedoms Bill: Third Reading (12 Mar 2012)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, I regret that I was not able to be present for the debate on Report, and I am therefore glad to have this opportunity to make brief comments on the progress that has been made on this part of the Bill. In the long innings of the Bill, I started off as an attacking batsman working with the sports and recreation sector in seeking to knock certain aspects of it out of the ground. I am...

Teaching School-Age Sport — Question for Short Debate (7 Dec 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, within the understanding and appreciation of the debate proposed by my noble friend Lord Addington, who I thank greatly, there has to be a key assumption that the quality and quantity of teaching of school-age sport is such that both factors are perfect: in other words, enough weekly hours of sports tuition and of a high enough standard to enthuse youngsters at school that they wish...

Protection of Freedoms Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, I will speak to the Government's Amendment 73 and in support of what my noble friend Lord Addington has said. I sincerely thank the Minister for meeting me and sports colleagues and Girlguiding UK and for such a constructive discussion. However, while I am sure that the new amended clause will produce a system that works quickly and efficiently for the vast majority of people-92 per...

Protection of Freedoms Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: I thank my noble friend for his response. Having lobbed the pebble in the water, it has drawn up several matters that I had not envisaged in my amendment. I am encouraged that the Minister has listened to my pleas, which perhaps is rather selfish, and has given assurances concerning governing bodies and further education. Working on the premise that it is better to be safe than sorry and...

Protection of Freedoms Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, I am glad to have the opportunity to build on the comments I made during Second Reading, which highlighted the efforts made by sports bodies to provide the safest possible environment for young people to enjoy sporting activity. As I said at Second Reading, the sport and recreation sector has voiced the concern that many individuals who have regular and close contact with children...

Protection of Freedoms Bill: Second Reading (8 Nov 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, at the risk of sounding like Little Miss Echo to my noble friend Lord Addington, my interest in the Bill centres on the impact it will have on the sports sector, particularly the work undertaken by national governing bodies of sport, NGBs, to ensure that all participants in sport are given a safe environment in which to play and administer, especially where a vast number of amateurs...

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Bill: Second Reading (3 Oct 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, I feel a little bit like the night watchman, batting at No. 13. I am more used to coming in at No. 3, she says immodestly. However, it is a pleasure to follow my noble friend Lord Clement-Jones on to the field of play, albeit he seems to be making a rather gloomy prediction. The gratifying factor about the London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Bill is that it is...

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Bill: Second Reading (3 Oct 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: It was the high-jump. I know that the noble Lord was there. He was saying, "Come on, Dorothy". Dorothy Tyler said: "We were staying in a pretty unpleasant hotel in Victoria. We only went training once to Motspur Park in the fortnight before the event". Compare that almost laid-back comment with the intensity and pressure of staging the 2012 Games and we all know why we must give the fullest...

Olympic Games 2012: Olympic Truce — Question (31 Mar 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, does my noble friend feel able to mirror the Spirit of Cricket campaign that the MCC has promoted in furthering cricketing causes in Afghanistan, which was promoted originally by my dear late friend Lord Cowdrey?

Schools: Physical Education — Question (30 Mar 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Addington for tabling this Question, not Answer. He and I jointly declare an interest because we are both such finely tuned athletes. [Laughter] Well, I am; I do not know about the noble Lord. My hope is that the quantity and quality assessment of schools physical education is relevant and ties in, first, with the Department for Education's announced...

Schools: Physical Education — Question (30 Mar 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My question to the Minister is: will he assure the House that there will be a clear pathway for schoolchildren from mass participation in physical education to competitive team sports so that we get value for money in this process?

International Women's Day — Debate (3 Mar 2011)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: My Lords, I am trembling at the batting crease, waiting to face the Opposition's fast bowling, but am relieved that the traditions of this honourable House mean that interruptions are not considered cricket. With great pride, I have moved from Lord's NW8 to the Lords SW1, and I thank everyone for an incredibly warm welcome-from the Doorkeepers to the highest officeholders among your...
