The Assembly’s Economic Development, Culture, Sport and Tourism (EDCST) Committee will tomorrow question Kate Hoey MP, the Mayor’s Sports Commissioner, on what is being done to guarantee the capital a sporting legacy from the 2012 Games.
She will be joined by Stewart Lucas, Chief Executive of Interactive: Disabled Equality in Sport, to discuss the challenge of boosting disabled access.
The Committee is investigating what has been achieved since the publication of the Mayor’s 2008 strategy, A Sporting Future for London. Members are likely to question Ms Hoey on how much of the £15m budget has been spent, how government spending cuts will effect sports provision and what is being done to widen access.
The EDCST Committee meeting will take place on Tuesday, 7 September from 10am in Committee Room 5 at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).
Media and members of the public are invited to attend. The meeting can also be viewed via webcast at: http://www.london.gov.uk/who-runs-london/the-london-assembly/webcasts
