A government minister has cited mindfulness as being “important” aid to policy development as it emerged that 145 MPs signed up to an eight-week course on the Buddhist practice.

Sports minister Tracey Crouch was speaking at a conference in Westminster, where she explained that she had taken up mindfulness when she was trying to come off anti-depressants.
