Truth & Rumors: UK sports minister joins call for R&A to admit women

Thursday November 15th, 2012

Just days after the outgoing chairman of the British Olympic Association speaks out, UK Sports minister Hugh Robertson agrees that the time has come for R&A to admit women members, according to a Golf 365 report.

"The defence of the Royal and Ancient is that it is a private club and so has the right to do what it wants.
"That is legally correct and I have no quarrel when it is acting as a private club. However, I believe that when a private club fulfils a public function, such as staging a major event, then there is a different slant."
