Stop the Sport Tax

Tell Health and Sport Minister Shona Robison MSP to stop taxing new sports facilities.

We are very concerned to learn that the budget which will be voted through the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday will tax new community sports facilities.

Here in Dundee, the planned Menzieshill Community Campus, containing two sports halls equipped with electronic scoreboards for all sports, will incur the sport tax.

The Sports Tax for new buildings planned by Leisure and Culture Dundee is a disincentive to replace old sports halls with new, modern facilities that our communities and our children deserve.

You are our Cabinet Secretary for Sport and Health. We would like to know why your Government is taxing community sport that makes our children healthier? This plan makes it much harder to create modern sports facilities in our communities, will you drop it from the budget on Wednesday?
