The specific issue raised by the Deputy has not featured in discussions of the COVID-19 Sports Monitoring Group.

The regulation of the insurance industry is a matter for my colleague, the Minister for Finance.

Given the importance of physical activity for physical and mental wellbeing, I would however be generally concerned that such obstacles would potentially materialise and I would hope that mutually satisfactory accommodations can be reached wherever necessary.
