The Senate Select Committee on Administration of Sports Grants (aka sports rorts) should be encouraged to continue and complete its
inquiry.    

There will be protests that there are more important issues for the parliament to consider. This is in a sense true. Sports grants in themselves are trivial compared to the challenges of dealing with COVID-19 and our economic recovery.

Sports enthusiasts may disagree, but grants to
local sporting bodies are not the key question here.
