The All Party Group for Sport
The All Party Parliamentary Group for Sport is formed of MPs and Peers from all political parties.
The group holds regular meetings in Westminster to discuss issues affecting sport at every level – from grassroots clubs to elite competition.
The secretariat is provided by the Sport and Recreation Alliance, allowing the group’s members to draw on the knowledge and experiences of over 320 national representative bodies of sport and recreation.
The group is chaired by Gerry Sutcliffe MP, who was Minister for Sport from 2007-10 and is also chair of the APPG for Disability Sports. The group’s vice-chairs are Lord Addington, Baroness Grey-Thompson and Andrew Bingham MP. Charlotte Leslie MP acts as secretary for the group.
At the group's Annual General Meeting in March 2013, former chair the Rt Hon Lord Pendry was elected as President in recognition of his twelve years of service to the group.
