Welcome U turn on School Sports Partnership but still not enough

A welcome U turn by the Education Secretary Michael Gove on his proposed cuts to the School Sports Partnership (SSP).  I’d like to think this decision is in part a response to my motion passed by a cross party of London Assembly Members at the last plenary meeting However, watch this space for the impact of changes on London which has 56 SSPs covering inner city areas like Tower Hamlets as well as the suburbs like Richmond.  The number of Londoners taking part in regular sport is actually falling so lets hope this is not just hot air so that the PM can pay lip service to the issue of sports funding in his olympic speech tonight, and that London is able to retain as many of its 56 SSPs as possible.
