To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will initiate an independent review of whether tennis as a sport in Northern Ireland is best promoted and developed under its current affiliation to Tennis Ireland.

I have no plans to initiate an independent review of whether tennis as a sport in Northern Ireland is best promoted and developed under its current affiliation to Tennis Ireland as this is not a matter for me, but a matter for the Ulster Branch of Tennis Ireland and its members. I am aware, however, that following recent meetings with the Sports Council for Northern Ireland, the Ulster Branch of Tennis Ireland has agreed to enter into exploratory discussions on possible options for any player that might prefer a different affiliation.
