The Education Committee published the Report into school sport following London 2012: No more political football and said that the Government must match long-term vision with long term funding to secure a 2012 legacy for school sport, the Chairman of the Education Committee said "London 2012 was a magical time and the Games generated massive enthusiasm, particularly among young people.
The Government needs to act to ensure that the momentum is not lost amid short-term plans and funding. If school sport is to grow, it needs sustained funding and time to develop."
