Sports Minister’s Tribute

November 25th, 2020

Although Monday’s debate in Westminster Hall had most MPs talking about sports facilities other than golf courses, especially gyms and swimming pools, there were some welcome remarks from the Minister for Sport.

Nigel Huddleston MP, who has been in post since February 2020, said, “The return of golf has had a tremendous amount of support from the public, as seen by over 250,000 people signing one of the petitions that led to this debate. Golf has great reach across society for all ages, backgrounds and abilities, bringing people together to experience the great outdoors. Like gyms, leisure centres and pools, the golfing community has made strenuous efforts to ensure that its players can take part safely. Once again, I pay tribute to its shared efforts.”

So, no more golf course closures, please Minister.
