In April this year, the Secretary of State convened a meeting of all interested parties to agree a package of measures aimed at resolving the issue of the blanket application of restrictive admissions policies at swimming pools. Following the meeting, officials have worked closely with the relevant organisations to deliver the agreed measures. On 8 September this year, the measures were published by my Department and implemented by relevant organisations. A copy of my Department's press statement has been placed the Libraries of both Houses. It can also be found at the following web link:
