PMQs: David Cameron considers school sports U-turn

David Cameron has ordered a rethink on plans to cut funding for school sports after concern "at local level", Downing Street has said.

Mr Cameron indicated a possible U-turn at prime minister's questions. In reply to a question from former sports minister Gerry Sutcliffe, Mr Cameron said he was "looking carefully at the debate that was held yesterday" and would make an announcement soon.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister then confirmed that Mr Cameron had asked Education Secretary Michael Gove and Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt to look again at the decision.
