question of sports minister

Answering questions is a familiar part of any Minister’s responsibilities, either in person, in Parliament or by letter and email.

The first A Question of Sports Minister was held to mark one year to go until London 2012 and we will announce any future opportunities to put your queries to the Minister.

A Question of Sports Minister is an opportunity for anyone who is interested in sports and the Olympics to email a question directly to the Minister responsible for these sectors. Questions can be fun or serious, raise issues or make suggestions, but should be brief. Please send your questions to us at We'll post the film of Hugh Robertson's answers on the DCMS website.

We hope this opportunity will be enjoyable and accessible, but there are some restrictions on the material we are able to include. While we will try to answer as many questions as possible and cover a broad range of topics, we cannot guarantee that all questions will be answered, particularly if they are unclear, lengthy, similar to other questions, party political, not relevant to the Minister’s portfolio or likely to cause offence.

A Question of Sports Minister is a quick fire Q&A, lasting no more than a few minutes – please keep your questions short, and to-the-point and we'll be more likely to be able to use them. We may edit your question for length, but we will always try to maintain the substance of your query. If we use your question we will also include your first name and city in the film, unless you request that you would like to remain anonymous.

Depending on the nature of the query, you may prefer one of the other ways of contacting DCMS. This website is a Government site, so party political content cannot be published under the rules governing the civil service.
