Culture secretary Ben Bradshaw will today announce a £6m funding package to back the opening of 3,000 new after-school sports clubs, the first of which the government hopes will open in the autumn.


Thompson's No 10  visit defended

Shadow culture secretary Ben Bradshaw has written to Mark Thompson after the BBC director general visited Downing Street to discuss coverage of spending cuts. Mr Bradshaw wrote seeking "clarification and reassurance" on the content of the meeting.


Former culture secretary Ben Bradshaw has called the government freeze of the TV licence fee and 16% cuts to the BBC's budget an "act of cultural and political vandalism".


The Culture Secretary has questioned the future of the licence fee, suggesting that there is "good reason" to have a debate over whether it is "the best funding mechanism" in the long term.

New entry Jim Murphy will be shadow defence secretary, Sadiq Khan will take the role of shadow Lord Chancellor and justice secretary while Andy Burnham moves to shadow education secretary.
