Charter Of Conduct For Sport

EDM number 1431 in 1989-90, proposed by Tom Pendry on 22/10/1990.

That this House congratulates the Central Council of Physical Recreation on its Charter of Conduct for Sport; welcomes its advice to members of governing bodies, officials, competitors and spectators that as representatives of their sports they should set a good example to the general public, and in particular to the younger generation, by the way they carry out their duties and responsibilities both on and off the field; fully supports its view that sponsors and promoters should not seek to improperly influence the outcome of non-professional competitions by financial inducements; applauds both its condemnation of the use of drugs by competitors and its call to coaches not to employ methods or practices that might involve risks to the long-term health or physical development of their charges; strongly concurs with its view that the maintenance of the highest standards of responsible journalism in the reporting of sport is vital; calls upon all those involved in sport to study the Charter and incorporate its contents into their own rules and codes of practice; and to that end praises the Football Association on taking swift action to punish those involved in the pitch brawl at Old Trafford on 20th October, in the hope that this will lead to the cessation of such incidents at football and other sporting events.

This motion has been ammended, see 525A1.

This motion has been signed by a total of 64 MPs.
