ITV News published this video item, entitled “‘Buck passing’ over sport concussion protocols slammed by MPs | ITV News” – below is their description.
The government should revamp the concussion protocol used in sports, a parliamentary inquiry concluded on the same day a study showed that playing elite rugby could lead to changes in brain structure.
The report from the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) committee of MPs, released on Thursday, called for the government to oversee the introduction of a coherent UK-wide minimum concussion protocol within the next year, mirroring the approach taken in Scotland.
It also called for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to be more closely involved in sport, with committee chair Julian Knight accusing it of a “dereliction of duty” in leaving it to sports to manage risks themselves.ITV News YouTube Channel
