Jason is pleased that indoor gyms, indoor swimming pools & leisure centres can reopen safely from Saturday 25 July - he raised it with the Secretary of State this morning.
Jason McCartney MP
Physical exercise is important for not just physical wellbeing but mental health.
With that in mind, when will the Secretary of State update the guidance so that we can soon see the safe reopening of gyms and fitness centres?
Oliver Dowden MP
I pay tribute to my hon. Friend, who has campaigned tirelessly on this point and raised it frequently with me.
I also pay tribute to the gyms themselves, which have engaged very constructively with us to overcome some of the hurdles, and I hope to be able to make an announcement imminently on this issue.
As I have said previously, the aim has always been to get gyms back by mid-July.
