A mental health screening programme will also be added for athletes and staff who are joining and leaving elite set-ups.

"In other countries, in other industries, where there are adverse consequences from commercial activities, each service contributes a portion of its turnover to an organisation or a cause meant to mitigate adverse side effects or to offset harm".

"It's these people who need to be at the heart of what we do and I welcome this opportunity to work closely with them, as well as experts, to oversee a cross-Government suicide prevention plan, making their sure their views are always heard".

Mr Clegg, then deputy prime minister, declared at the Lib Dem spring conference that the services would get £250 million extra for five years.
