A sedentary lifestyle

I had a pedometer not so long ago. It is recommended that you should do at least 10,000 steps a day. However, even when I did not use the lift I could not get past 5,000 on an Assembly day. Other AMs have commented that they have had the same experience. It is fair to say therefore that Assembly Members have a fairly sedentary lifestyle when in Cardiff Bay. One member who seems to be feeling it more than most is the Conservative, David Melding. Yesterday, he actually stood up to ask the Minister for Health about sitting down:

David Melding: Minister, you are quite right to say that people have lost the skills that they used to have in terms of preparing food. It is the same with exercise. We now sit down for around seven times longer than our ancestors did four or five generations ago. Do you agree that we need community effort to get people back into a regular, effective and lifelong exercise routine?
