Sport to receive £50m lottery boost

Sport is to get a £50 million a year boost by 2012 from the National Lottery as part of reforms to try to secure a strong legacy from hosting the London Games, Olympics Minister Hugh Robertson has announced.

The aim of the plan, backed by order in Parliament, will be to "deliver a mass participation sports legacy from London 2012", he said, after outlining his vision to executives of Olympic sports bodies at the British Olympic Association's central London headquarters.
