• Tackle growing levels of childhood obesity. Put a ‘sugar tax’ on the profits of carbonated soda companies. Ban vending machines from schools and provide water fountains.
  • Start Fruit and Veg Clubs in all schools to make sure children get their five portions a day and build healthy eating habits for the future.
  • Increase physical activity in the school curriculum.
  • Invest in local facilities and create affordable public gyms. In an urban environment, we need more access to excercise facilities. Publicly-owned gyms and swimming pools can keep prices down and help create greater community spirit.
  • Provide outdoor recreational facilities, such skate parks and dirt tracks.
  • Ensure all urban and rural areas have sporting facilities available to the local population, including pitches and equipment.
  • Create a country-wide network of cycle lanes. A nationwide cycle-lane programme would reduce pollution and make the nation healthier.
  • Legislate to give registered fans control over the running of clubs: Sport should be run by its participants and supporters – not by big business or executives on super-salaries; sports grounds should not be sold off by cliques that gain control of clubs.
  • Keep the broadcasting rights to major sporting events open.
