Our mission is to make sense of policy development and legislation within Westminster and Whitehall. Our team includes former DCMS civil servants and MPs who have worked for over a decade in sport policy at DCMS and the Treasury who have an intimate understanding of workings in Parliament.
We also run a small network for public affairs professionals who work in the sport and physical activity sector. We aim to share our intelligence about the sector, recent research and innovative thinking and would like to hear from anyone who thinks they would benefit from joining this network. This is an invite only group so please contact us for further details.
We will identify the most important Written PQs and the answers from Ministers and highlight anything we learn that is new.
Ministerial Question on the floor of the House to various Ministers in DCMS, DfE and Health will be highlighted and covered by our team.
