Cross Party Group (CPG) on Sport

The Scottish Sports Association is joint secretariat for the CPG on Sport along with the office of the convener Liz Smith MSP.

Cross-Party Groups (CPGs) provide an opportunity for Members of all parties, outside organisations and members of the public to meet and discuss a shared interest in a particular cause or subject. Full details on CPGs can be found on the Scottish Parliament website here.

Purpose of the group:

  • To support the development of sport, sporting and being active opportunities towards a more active Scotland
  • To ensure that sport/being active, and the benefits of sport and being active, have a high profile in the Scottish Parliament
  • To influence Scottish Government policy
  • To liaise with sportscotland, Scottish Governing Bodies of sport and other relevant national and active recreation organisations in Scotland so that such organisations will be able to keep MSPs informed on matters affecting Scottish sport and a more active Scotland.
