Rather than today’s press release from government that states ‘outdoor sport resumes for under 18’s’ being received positively, it merely highlights the discriminatory and unfair attitude Ministers are showing to all sports people.

The continued prohibition of over 18’s appears not to have been taken on medical advice but an arbitrary decision taken by politicians without input from the relevant parties. Over 18’s are experiencing similar issues on their mental and physical well-being as our younger generation are.

We question the government’s decision not to seek input from the Assistant Minister for Sport, Jersey Sport or any sports clubs or associations.

Inconsistency seems to be the order of the day for this government. The Progress Party implore government to reconsider this decision immediately.
