Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: As always, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Mr Jack) for leading today’s debate, which follows the recent Adjournment debate tabled by the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon). I am grateful to the hon. Member for Wyre Forest (Mark Garnier) for his intervention. He contributed to the...

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful for my hon. Friend’s clarification, but it is not just about the cost; it could also be about the accommodation. We are looking at the issue and, as I said at the outset, the Secretary of State and I both support the inclusion of shooting, but as core partners in the delivery of the Commonwealth games, we must ensure we deliver a cost-effective games. These are not...

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I do not disagree with the hon. Gentleman or with my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway, but there are logistical and cost challenges. They are not necessarily ones that we cannot overcome, and both Members are right to place their points on the record, to ensure that anyone reading this debate, particularly from the Commonwealth Games Federation, understands that there is a...

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. We can further discuss the assumptions in his point after the debate. In selecting optional sports, the games partners have to take into account the four considerations I just outlined while complying with the athlete and team official quota restrictions set by the Commonwealth Games Federation, which is one of the assumptions my hon. Friend alluded to. The...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: It is as always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McDonagh. I have been a football fan for as long as I can remember. I played football, I collected the sticker books —I still do—and as soon as I was old enough, I started to go to football matches. I used to walk across the rec to Reachfields to watch Hythe Town. If I had earned extra pocket money, I used to jump on...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for her intervention. I still feel quite scarred by the response I received on social media to my initial comments. They were loose and wrong, but were not a reflection of my views on football. It was certainly unfair of people to say that I did not understand the game with which I have been personally involved since I was knee high to a grasshopper. That shows...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I was about to say that the all-seater policy has served football and football fans well over many years—the hon. Gentleman makes that point. It is not just a domestic measure: FIFA and UEFA both mandate that host stadiums for their main competitions must be all-seater. Let us not forget that all-seater stadiums provided the impetus for clubs to transform their grounds after years of...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: That perfectly outlines the challenge we face. At the moment, we do not have the data or the evidence to make a decision either way on the issue. What I am announcing today is that we will start the data and evidence collection, because as the hon. Gentleman says, it is clear that there are gaps in the injury data. We know that the current format of data collection does not allow people to...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: That is why I praise Norwich City’s pragmatic approach in recognising that some fans who were persistently standing in a family section were causing a great deal of distress to people who pay a significant amount of money to watch their team with young children. It has effectively moved those fans to a different part of the stadium, which allows the family supporters to continue to...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: No, I will carry on. On top of what I have already announced, the SGSA is currently revising the “Green Guide”, which sets out the standards of sports ground safety that apply in this country. It is influential around the world, as it is absorbed by sports bodies and Governments looking for authoritative advice on sports grounds safety. The revised guide is due for publication...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: Over 1 million people watch football every week. We are grateful for the engagement of fans from across the country in expressing their views on safe standing, including 541 of the hon. Gentleman’s own constituents who signed the recent petition. We are looking into any changes that may be needed, and we are in discussions with the football authorities and relevant stakeholders to...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: It is only in the top two tiers of football that an all-seated stadium policy exists; the other tiers are allowed to have standing. However, we are working very closely with all the football authorities to look at this issue.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: There are variations in a number of policy matters between different sports, and standing is just one of them. Of course, I wish Rochdale well in its promotion attempts next season. It did not do so well last season, as I know from many of the lobby fans of Rochdale. We are looking at all the various issues. We are working very closely with fan groups and the football authorities to carefully...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I recently had the pleasure of meeting a member of the Celtic board, albeit by accident, in Westminster. I can assure my hon. Friend that members of the Sports Ground Safety Authority and my officials have already spoken to Celtic.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: As I have made clear in almost every answer I have given, we work very closely with bodies such as the Football Supporters’ Federation and Supporters Direct. We are listening to the football authorities and we are looking at this issue more carefully. There are a number of complexities around safe standing, as I am sure the hon. Gentleman appreciates. This will be debated in more detail...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I am always happy to listen to the Iron Trust.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I have already said that I am listening to a number of people in football from across the board, including the authorities. We are looking at all the data and evidence and will make a decision in due course.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Hockey (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: Hockey is a fantastic sport and I am pleased that Sport England is continuing to invest in the good work that England Hockey is doing to promote the game at the grassroots across the country. We all know that the hockey women’s world cup is taking place in London this summer. Given that the England matches are already sold out, I am sure it is going to be absolutely brilliant and...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Hockey (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I will indeed congratulate Kettering hockey club on its award. It is an absolutely fantastic achievement. We need to remember that, quite often, hockey clubs and lots of other sporting clubs are run by dedicated volunteers who go on to inspire lots of people to get involved.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: You will be shocked to learn, Mr Speaker, that I did in fact do some gig rowing last year, when I was in Mousehole in Cornwall. I should be more than happy to meet my hon. Friend to discuss how we can promote it further.
