Sport and Coronavirus

I chaired a meeting of the All Party Group for Sport, with a panel made up of leading CEOs in the sector, to discuss the challenges and opportunities of coronavirus.

We highlighted the need for clarity on school PE funding and the need to get kids back in to healthy and active routines where some may not have had this at home. We spoke about the financial challenges facing grass roots clubs and associations as well as self-employed trainers and coaches.

We also highlighted the opportunity to embed the more active lifestyles that some have taken up, including more participation in walking and cycling, especially on the commute to work.

Great to see interest and coverage in the Telegraph from our meeting. I'll be raising these points with Ministers.
