To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport by what date he expects the Sport England Strategy for 2008 to 2011 to have been implemented. (261466)

[holding answer 6 March 2009]: Sport England’s new strategy runs between April 2008 and March 2011, and implementation is ongoing during this period.

A key element of the strategy is Sport England’s investment in national governing bodies of sport (NGBs). 46 NGBs have been commissioned to deliver specific outcomes over four years, contributing to the outcomes Sport England has committed to achieving, including 1 million more people engaged in sport by 2012-13.
