§ Dr. Summerskill
The report of Lord Goodman's Committee on Charity Law and Voluntary Organisations set up by the National Council of Social Service includes a recommendation that the encouragement of sport and recreation should be recognised as a charitable object, provided that the necessary elements of altruism and benefit to a sufficient section of the community are present. The Government are considering this in conjunction with the Committee's other recommendations.
