Physical inactivity: All-Party Commission recommends a national "action plan" and physical literacy in schools

The All-Party Commission on Physical Activity has just released their report on dealing with physical inactivity and its health impacts across the UK. They make a number of recommendations, including the need for a "National Plan of Action" to tackle physical activity levels across the whole population, and to develop physical literacy within the curriculum in schools. There's lots more in the report itself which can be found here . You might also have seen a report on BBC Breakfast this morning about the recommendations, and several other news outlets have picked up on it - here and here - but make sure you go into the report itself and locate and read the information there (especially that "37 000 preventable deaths" figure) if you're going to use any of it in your work.
