Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: As I made clear in questions before the recess, there will be no further announcement on this matter before October?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: Of course I give this regular thought. That is a voluntary commitment from the gambling industry, but I have met GambleAware, and it is sometimes quite shocking to hear some of the stories. For example, one bookmaker—not a national bookmaker, I hasten to add—sent GambleAware a cheque for 1p as part of its contribution. That is not good enough. We have to consider the issue of...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Hockey (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: Not only do I support the continued investment of Sport England in grassroots hockey via England Hockey, but during the recess I put my own shins at risk, borrowed a stick and did a “back to hockey” session at a local club. While I was absolutely shattered, I loved it more than I ever did when I was at school.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Hockey (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I would be delighted to join my hon. Friend in congratulating Kettering hockey club. A number of hockey clubs across the country are investing in their facilities to attract more people to participate in hockey.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: It is a good job I am fit, Mr Speaker. There is no place for discrimination of any kind in sport. All forms of discrimination are unacceptable, and the Government are committed to tackling it.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: There is a stubborn gender gap in sports participation. We are addressing it through a variety of initiatives, including the “This Girl Can” campaign—although that is not the only thing; there are a number of excellent initiatives out there—and we are helping to shift the gender gap through investment in not only grassroots sport but in elite sport, in which we saw...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: That is a question from my hon. Friend that I can agree with. It was a pleasure to meet the mixed ability sports rugby team about 18 months ago to discuss their tournament in my hon. Friend’s constituency, and I was pleased by their success over the summer recess. I would, of course, be happy to meet them again, and him, to discuss taking this forward.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I am happy to join the hon. Lady in congratulating the England women’s rugby team, and also, of course, the England women’s cricket team, who won the world cup as well. I was a coach in an all-girls football club, but I was the only female coach at that club, so I completely understand the point that she has made. The sports strategy sets out, very carefully, our wish to see more...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: Yeovil Town is indeed an example of great success in women’s football, and I join my hon. Friend in congratulating the club on what it is doing. I also congratulate other female football clubs around the country that are doing their bit to inspire the next generation of girls to get involved in football.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: It is great to see the hon. Lady back after the summer recess. I know you will be shocked to learn, Mr Speaker, that, owing to a conspiracy, she and I were disqualified from the three-legged race during the parliamentary sports day. Thankfully a full inquiry is under way to relieve the shame on Parliament. The hon. Lady raises some extremely serious issues. Obviously, I have been keeping...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: The hon. Member for West Bromwich East (Tom Watson) said that surprise was the name of the game, but I am not surprised by my hon. Friend’s question about rugby. We all understand the importance of rugby in his constituency, and the hall of fame has provided a great opportunity for tourism and heritage. I join him in his support of that.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: The Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act 2014 brought all online gambling sites under the regulatory remit of the Gambling Commission. The commission keeps all such matters under regular review, and the outcomes of that include a recent fine for 888. We continue to look to ensure that the regulation of both online and land-based gambling is robust.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: We are working on a programme to promote local and small charities later this year, further details of which will be announced shortly. If the hon. Lady has any particular concerns about small charities in her constituency, I would be happy to meet her to discuss them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Tennis Tournaments (29 Jun 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I have not made such an assessment, but the Lawn Tennis Association currently reviews the number of Challenger and Futures events held in this country, working with the Association of Tennis Professionals, the Women’s Tennis Association and the International Tennis Federation. Mr Speaker, I am sure you and the whole House will agree that British tennis is in its healthiest state for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Tennis Tournaments (29 Jun 2017)

Tracey Crouch: One of the frustrating things about being Sports Minister is that we do not get to make all the decisions that people want us to make. I agree that if we are going to encourage talent to play tennis at the highest level, we do need to have the right level of international events. That is an issue for the LTA. In the meantime, my job is to make sure that we get the right money going into the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Tennis Tournaments (29 Jun 2017)

Tracey Crouch: I entirely agree with my hon. Friend, of course, on every point that she made. She is absolutely right. She is a regular advocate for the benefits of tennis. We have invested £8 million into the Lawn Tennis Association to grow the game, and we will continue to do so. She regularly champions Taunton and all its sporting events. The women’s world cup is being hosted in Taunton this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Young People (29 Jun 2017)

Tracey Crouch: The Government are committed to ensuring that all children and young people have the best opportunities to engage in sport and physical activity. Between 2016 and 2021, we will invest more than £194 million in projects to increase children’s capability in and enjoyment of physical activity.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Young People (29 Jun 2017)

Tracey Crouch: Given my brazen attempts to steal school sport from the Department for Education on a number of occasions, I can only tell the House that we have a strong cross-governmental approach to the matter. The past 18 months have seen the publication of two landmark strategies, which include the sport strategy and the childhood obesity plan. We continue to work closely with the Department for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Young People (29 Jun 2017)

Tracey Crouch: It would always be a pleasure to visit my hon. Friend in Swindon, as I did before the general election. If he has the opportunity over the next week, I encourage him and other hon. Members to find out where their local school games are and to go along and visit them, because they are providing a real way of changing attitudes towards sport and physical activity.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Young People (29 Jun 2017)

Tracey Crouch: In the sports strategy we believe that giving people with disabilities access to sport is a way to get them engaged with sport. I expect the final report from the Premier League on how those clubs have met their pledge to meet accessible stadia guidelines to be published towards the end of August or early September.
