Oliver Dowden – 2021 Comments on Return to Organised Sport

The comments made by Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on 29 March 2021.

The long wait is over. I urge everyone to get their trainers on, get outside and enjoy all of the positive benefits sport can bring.

We want to see children be active 60 minutes a day, and adults two and a half hours a week to help us build back fitter, healthier and happier from this pandemic.

Sport and physical activity will be at the heart of our national recovery and today marks a really important step forward.
