 The House of Lords Select Committee on a National Plan for Sport and Recreation has published its call for evidence.

The deadline for submitting written evidence is Friday 29 January 2021.

Lord Willis of Knaresborough, who chairs the Committee, said:

"In 2015 the Government launched its Sporting Future strategy which followed a long period where we saw significant investment in sport after the introduction of lottery funding and the 2012 Olympics. However, we have also seen stagnant physical activity rates and changes in the way people keep active. The time has come to ask whether the Government have the right priorities for helping more people to live active lifestyles.

"Our inquiry will only be as strong as the evidence we get and I would encourage anyone with an interest in these issues to give us their views. We would love to hear from people delivering sports and recreation at the grassroots to understand what help they need to get more people active."

This is a public call for evidence – please pass it on to anyone who might be interested.
