Government 'squandering' Olympic sporting legacy

Labour have slammed the Government for 'squandering' the legacy of the Olympic Games.

The party claimed the Conservatives have no strategy for sport, have scrapped PE targets and have failed to capitalise on the spirit and enthusiasm of the volunteer games makers.

David Cameron and Michael Gove have failed to secure a school sport legacy.

All children should be getting a minimum of two hours of rigorous exercise and competitive sport every week. But this Government has made that less likely. They need to change course.

– Stephen Twigg MP, Shadow Education Secretary
