Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage (6 Sep 2018)

Luke Hall: I thank the Secretary of State for that answer and welcome him to his place. South Gloucestershire Council is close to achieving 96.5% coverage of superfast broadband, which is remarkable considering how rural some of the district is. However, some rural communities, such as Bibstone, are being left behind. What assurances can my right hon. Friend provide that South Gloucestershire...

Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty: Pairing (23 Jul 2018)

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

Luke Hall: I beg to move, That this House has considered e-petition 207040 relating to allowing Premier League and Championship football clubs to introduce safe standing. I am delighted to have the opportunity to open this debate on what is clearly an incredibly important issue for football supporters across the country. The petition was launched by supporter Owen Riches and calls for current...

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

Luke Hall: I will talk about specific clubs later on. Standing was common practice at football grounds across the country until Lord Justice Taylor’s recommendations were acted on following the 1989 Hillsborough disaster. The findings from the final report in 1990 have shaped supporter safety ever since, and from August 1994 clubs in the English premier league and championship have been required...

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

Luke Hall: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for putting those remarks on the record and commend him for all the work he has done to represent his constituents on this matter.

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

Luke Hall: I thank the hon. Gentleman for putting that point on the record. That highlights the potential for devolution. Importantly, Celtic’s application was just for a change in the type of seating; there was no increase in the number of people in the stands. The density of people at Celtic Park was therefore the same, which is important when we look at safety in that example. The Football...

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

Luke Hall: The hon. Gentleman is right to put his constituents’ comments on the record, which are duly noted and replicated by many Yate Town football fans who have spoken to me on this matter. As we explore the various arguments, we are tasked with comparing a 30-year period of improvements in supporter safety with the relatively early years in the introduction of safe standing and some of the...

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

Luke Hall: The point that the hon. Lady highlights is right. The important point is that devolving the decision to local authorities, which would take into account the police’s experience of dealing with issues at specific clubs and in specific stands, would provide more flexibility. The debate centres on enhancing safety and control. It is about the extent to which devolution is required, and to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Luke Hall: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Youth unemployment in Thornbury and Yate has fallen by 23% in the last year, and the scrapping of stamp duty for more than 80% of first-time buyers means that more people in south Gloucestershire can afford a home of their own. Does the Prime Minister agree that while the Labour party can offer only higher taxes, fewer jobs and broken promises on student debt, this...
