Motion text

That this House welcomes proposals to define, in statute, community amateur sports clubs; acknowledges such clubs' invaluable role in improving public health, building stronger communities and providing recreational opportunities, particularly for young people; recognises that many clubs have long struggled to make ends meet; notes that comparable arts organisations receive far more favourable tax treatment, as a result of the outdated and anomalous Recreational Charities Act 1958; believes that the introduction of limited tax exemptions could reduce CASC's overheads and, above all, increase their ability to raise money from their local communities; notes the growing cross-party support for such proposals; and believes that the implementation of these measures would be warmly welcomed, particularly among the 1.5 million volunteers upon whom the long-term wellbeing of British sport is dependent.
