MSPs to hear from Robison on sport
04:25, Oct 2 2012
The minister for the Commonwealth Games is due to appear before MSPs as part of an investigation into support for community sport.
Shona Robison will answer questions days after Holyrood's Health and Sport Committee heard from Andy Murray's tennis coach mum Judy Murray and former distance runner Liz McColgan.
They both warned that more effort must be put into supporting young people with accessible, affordable facilities and quality coaching.
Ms Murray said there is enormous opportunity to harness people's imagination after the London Olympics.
Ms McColgan warned that current conditions for sport provision are "a sad state of affairs".
As well as general support, the committee is looking at the contribution of volunteers, the benefits of local sports clubs and the facilities available across the country.
Ms Robison's remit takes in sport and the Commonwealth Games which are due to be held in Glasgow in 2014.
