Tory sports spokesman Hugh Robertson has called on Tessa Jowell to disown remarks made by Labour sports minister Richard Caborn.  According to BBC Online Mr Caborn said that sports people should not be banned for using "social" drugs.

Mr Robertson:

“Richard Caborn’s comments are wrong and appear directly to contradict UK sport’s very clear stance on drug taking by elite athletes. The performance of an elite athlete in any sport will be affected by taking recreational drugs and top sportsmen and women act as role models for many young people. I hope that Tessa Jowell will disown these illogical and damaging comments.”
