Accessible Sports Grounds Bill [HL] — Second Reading (17 Jul 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...Winchester, talked about Lord’s. As I have said, it would be covered. It is worth repeating my note on which stadia would be covered by the Bill.

I am sure that the organisers would welcome...

Sajid Javid: May I first pay tribute to my predecessor, the equally hirsute former Member for Twickenham? As part of the coalition Government, Dr Cable did a great deal to support British business. Speaking of former members, I see that last month Lord Sugar resigned his membership of the Labour party, citing its negative business policies and general anti-enterprise approach. It seems that while the...
