I heard the Secretary of State say some welcome things about sport. Given the importance of maintaining fitness to the ability to deal with this illness, can he confirm whether people will be able to go to indoor swimming pools and play golf?

Matt Hancock (The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care) 

Yes, golf is back. Outdoor sport will be available under all the tiers, and we will publish all the details for each tier imminently.
