Science, Innovation and Technology: Topical Questions (22 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: It is good to see the hon. Member for South Thanet back in his place. Last year, the UK hosted the AI safety summit and set up the AI Safety Institute. However, since then, developers of frontier AI have refused to share information with the Safety Institute, leaving it toothless. Labour has repeatedly called for binding regulation to support safety. With the Secretary of State discussing the...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 27 - Duties to notify IFR of prospective new owner or officer (21 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: Further to the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield South East, in some cases there may also be an issue with training grounds being separated from the main organisation of the club. The current owner of Reading was trying to sell the training ground separately from the ground itself and from the club. Can the Minister write to me on that matter? It does not currently appear...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 26 - Part 4: overview and interpretation (21 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: I commend what my hon. Friend is saying. She knows full well the issues of my local club, Reading, which sadly was bought by the current owner. He was disapplied from buying Hull City but went on to buy Reading, despite a history of being involved in two clubs that went out of business overseas. I hope the measures in the clause will address this and stop other football clubs around the...

Animal Welfare (Responsibility for Dog Attacks) Bill (17 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: I thank the hon. Member for Southend West (Anna Firth) for her work in this important area of policy. We are a nation of dog lovers, as was said earlier, and people in Britain care deeply about animal welfare. The Opposition therefore of course support the Bill. I want to speak briefly in support of it and raise a constituency case, which is similar to one that she mentioned earlier. I found...

Space Industry (Indemnities) Bill (17 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: It is a pleasure to speak on this Bill, for which I commend the hon. Member for Woking (Mr Lord). As others have said, private companies need a spaceflight operator licence, as set out in the Space Industry Act 2018, before they can operate from the UK. I am pleased to say that we continue to support the Act as a means to ensure safety and compliance, and it is right that the Act works to...

School Attendance (Duties of Local Authorities and Proprietors of Schools) Bill (17 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: I commend my hon. Friend for her support for further interventions to support children and young people facing mental health difficulties. It is an issue raised frequently in many MPs’ surgeries, including in mine, so I am very grateful for her support in this important area.

Dogs (Protection of Livestock) (Amendment) Bill: Clause 1 - Livestock worrying: scope and consequences of offence (17 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: My hon. Friend is making an excellent contribution by highlighting the need for dogs to be on leads and the terrible pressures on farmers at this difficult time. Further to the point about education and information for owners, sadly there is a small minority of irresponsible dog owners who have caused terrible problems for farmers. There is a much broader group of dog owners who are...

Matt Rodda: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, pursuant to the Answer of 13 May 2024 to Question 25013 on Ministry of Justice: ICT, for what reason his Department considers publishing the latest available figures on the number of red-rated systems it holds a security risk, in the context of the publication of the Central Digital & Data Office's guidance entitled, Guidance on the Legacy IT Risk...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 8 - The IFR’s regulatory principles (16 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: My hon. Friend is making an excellent point about the importance of fans and players, and indeed, by implication, football club staff. As we heard this morning, fans, players and others have suffered from enormous challenges when there have been problems with ownership. It is difficult to describe the full level of stress and pressure that many fans of clubs have suffered over long periods,...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: Q As you said, there have been some serious problems with owners, not least at Reading. Do you feel that the Bill does enough to tackle that, potentially, through the regulator? Also, do you feel that there is enough of a fan’s voice in the process of raising concerns about owners?

Matt Rodda: Q Thank you for your evidence this morning. Could you give us some examples of good practice by particular clubs?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of witness (16 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: I will be very quick. Do you have some examples of structures that are working well at the moment to protect players? Do you feel that the Bill does enough to ensure that those continueQ ?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 May 2024)

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: Q I will ask a second question about grassroots football. I was thinking about this, because I have two kids who used to play and had regular problems with waterlogged pitches and other issues: how would you describe the state of grassroots pitches and provision across the country?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witness (14 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: Q To return briefly to the point that Clive made, there is enormous strength of feeling among many fans and clubs about the replays. What is the process for reviewing that decision?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witness (14 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: Q What will you be able to do for seasons in the future?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: You have spoken so eloquently. I am looking at this from the perspective of my local club Reading, which has had very serious problems with the current owner. The previous owner was absolutely wonderful in creating a positive Q culture. My question is: how do we find more owners with the right intentions and motivation, and help them to play a bigger role?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 May 2024)

Matt Rodda: Q This question is for Rick Parry. Where a potential owner has a track record of being associated with clubs overseas that have got into difficulties, do you believe the Bill has enough powers to prevent that in future?
