Faisal attends APPG on Swimming

I’m pleased to have joined the meeting of the APPG on Swimming to discuss the Government’s plans for tackling swimming and water safety in primary schools.

I believe it’s crucial that we allow all of our primary school children to learn the important skill of swimming. In Warrington South, there is only one 25m x 4 lane school pool meaning we do not have enough pool stock to service the 2000 children waiting to learn to swim and the 2900 weekly lessons taking place.

I will continue to use all my Parliamentary resources to advocate primary swimming and for the Government to take greater measures to improve swimming and water safety attainment in primary schools, including a new 6 lane swimming pool to meet our needs locally.
