Clive Efford MP, Labour’s Shadow Sports Minister, responding to the announcement of a public consultation on sport strategy, said:

“The government’s consultation is five years too late and can’t hide the fact that with a year to Rio the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic legacy is crumbling. David Cameron’s sport strategy has been an abject failure - he’s wasted a once in a generation opportunity to inspire people to get active and play sport.

“The Prime Minister’s own Sport’s Minister has contradicted him again and admitted that fewer people are playing sport since the Olympics. They’ve actually taken the country backwards after the high point of 2012 and wasted the investment and opportunity that came with it.

"Labour has long been calling for a long-term cross-departmental sports strategy. Ministers must finally follow Labour’s lead and make the radical decisions we need to help future generations get active and enjoy sport.”

fox.jpgClive is delighted that David Cameron’s underhand attempt to use Parliamentary procedure to water down the hunting ban without a full debate in the House of Commons has failed.  He has warned however, that the Tories are bound to try again.

Clive is a passionate supporter of the ban on hunting and has promised to oppose any moves to weaken or repeal the Hunting Act whenever a vote does take place.

Although the Tories were defeated this time, David Cameron promised in his election manifesto that he would give MPs a free vote on repealing the ban, so they will try again.  

That is why Clive needs your help. Please sign his petition opposing any attempt to repeal or water down the ban.  This would make his job of keeping the ban much easier, knowing that so many of his constituents support the ban.  You can register your support by going to http://www.cliveefford.org.uk/backtheban.  Signing the petition will also allow Clive to keep you informed about this very serious issue.

Working together we will be successful in fighting to back the Ban.

hunting_act_2008.jpgDavid Cameron has announced that he will hold a vote on "relaxing" the fox hunting ban next Wednesday.  Cameron is using Parliamentary procedure to sneak the changes through thereby avoiding a full debate on the issue in the House of Commons.

Clive is determined to do all that he can to oppose the move and will vote against Cameron's measure.
