Education secretary John Patten has backed the reintroduction of more team sports into schools - but hinted that little extra time for them would be allocated in the national curriculum, The Guardian reports (p3).

However, he said he had not seen proposals from sports minister Iain Sproat to make teachers work extra hours promoting competitive team games.

Speaking on the BBC's Breakfast with Frost, Mr Patten said he was still reviewing the whole national curriculum, but added: 'The Prime Minister is very concerned about team sports in this country and wants to see them raised in profile.'
