Working Group on Scottish Sport


On September 19, 2013, the Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport, Shona Robison MSP, announced that an independent, expert Working Group on Scottish Sport (WGSS) would be established to consider the continuing development of Scottish sport and the opportunities presented by an independent Scotland.

Former First Minister Henry McLeish has agreed to chair the WGSS and the final report of the Working Group on Scottish Sport was published on May 9, 2014.  The conclusions of the WGSS will build on the independence White Paper and further inform the referendum debate.
