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.”
