Sport Minister to face questions on the governance of sport

14 November 2017

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee questions Tracey Crouch MP, the Under-Secretary of State for Sport and Civil Society.


Tuesday 14 November 2017, Committee Room 18, Palace of Westminster

At 10.30am

Purpose of the session

As part of their inquiry into Sports Governance, the Digital, Culture Media and Sport Committee questions Tracey Crouch MP, Minister for Sport and Civil Society, on her response to the issues raised in evidence sessions with British Cycling, the FA and figures from the world of Paralympics.
MPs are to use the session to highlight the general lack of grievance procedures and whistleblowing mechanisms for both athletes and staff across various sports.
Since allegations of bullying and harassment in sport have come to the fore throughout the inquiry, the Committee intends to explore whether the Government's new Code for Sports Governance is doing enough to actively prevent such cases and protect athletes and staff.
