CAL committee inquiry
I attended a meeting of the Culture Arts and Leisure Committee at Stormont to give evidence to their inquiry into Sport and Physical Recreation.
In the course of the meeting I referred to the importance of Sport Matters: The Northern Ireland Strategy for Sport and Physical Recreation 2009-2019, which was approved by the Northern Ireland Executive in December 2009. One of the key problems that the strategy seeks to tackle is the decline in adult participation in sport and physical recreation and Sport Matters sets out a strategy and a structure for implementation, embracing all stakeholders, to be overseen by the Minister of culture, Arts and Leisure.
