Question to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, if the Government will provide compensation for the additional costs incurred by ice rinks following the revision of Government guidance on 17 July 2020, altering the date when those rinks could open as the covid-19 lockdown restrictions are eased.

Answer (Nigel Huddleston)

Sports and physical activity facilities play a crucial role in supporting adults and children to be active. From 1 August ice-skating rinks should be able to reopen.These facilities will be able to offer on-site services to customers, provided they are COVID-secure and follow Government guidance.

Sport England have announced a £195 million package of support to help community clubs through this crisis. It recently boosted its Community Emergency Fund by a further £15 million to meet the demand, taking the total up to £210 million.
