The Princess Royal has said the 
introduction of health and safety rules in sport could actually put more children at risk of harm.

 

In an interview with The Telegraph, the Princess tells of her concern that children no longer have the “skills” to choose for themselves what is safe because “health and safety” has decided for them, making some activities more dangerous as a result.

 

She also speaks of feeling “cross” that areas of Britain are being condemned as “disadvantaged” to enable charities to obtain funding.
