Sporting Legacy Board

I travelled to Glasgow today for a meeting of the UK Sporting Legacy Board, which was established to maximise the legacy from the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. The board is chaired by the UK Sports minister Gerry Sutcliffe MP and consists of sports ministers from the devolved administrations as well as the chairs of the four sports councils and representatives from local government and sports agencies.

This was the second meeting and it was held in the Glasgow City Chambers. In the absence of Gerry Sutcliffe, because of parliamentary duties, the chair was taken by Scottish sports minister Shona Robison MSP.  I met Shona some weeks ago during my visit to Scotland and hope to invite her over to Northern Ireland for a visit in due course.

Afterwards we went across the city to Hampden Park, where we received a presentation on the preparations that are being made in terms of sporting infrastructure for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
