Schools: Music Education - Motion to Take Note (18 Oct 2018)

Lord Agnew of Oulton: .... I am aware of an excellent drama and music production organised by the King’s College School in Wimbledon in partnership with Ricards Lodge High School, Coombe high school, St Mark’s Academy and Cricket Green special school. Interestingly, the statistics for those studying music GCSE are broadly the same in the independent sector and the state sector: about 6% in the state...

Local Government Reform: Greater London — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Andrew Rosindell: ...centuries. It is a historic county with its own identity and distinct culture, combined with religious, social, sporting and business networks. Our postal address is “Romford, Essex”. We cheer for the Essex county cricket team. Our local regiment is the Essex Regiment, which has been awarded the freedom of Havering. Our Church of England parishes fall within the diocese of...

Racehorse Protection — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Oct 2018)

Luke Pollard: ...accepted is because they are horses. Were they humans, that level of fatality in a sport would not be accepted. We have to ask whether, if we applied the same standards to animal welfare as we do to human welfare, as is increasingly the case in animal welfare policy, we would accept the same number of deaths in cricketers or rugby players. Labour demands that the industry comes up with...

Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (15 Oct 2018)

Lord Newby: ...facts or even suggestions from the Government as to how discussions on the future relationship document are progressing. So we come to the immediate cause of the breakdown: the question of the backstop and its backstops. If we were on a cricket field, we would be inventing new fielding positions, each one more ludicrous than the last—and each one unnecessary if we had a well-run...

Scottish Parliament: Motion of Condolence (2 Oct 2018)

Willie Rennie: the Parliament at a time of great potential instability. He ensured that even when an Opposition member did not like what had happened, they might at least have a smile on their face. Alex loved cricket. Who better than a former Presiding Officer to umpire the cricket match between MSPs and the press? Like all good umpires and Presiding Officers, he was not above making an observation...

Theresa May: I am sure that Members across the House will wish to join me in congratulate Alastair Cook on his fantastic service to English cricket. As England’s highest-ever-scoring batsman, his incredible career had many highlights, including the magnificent 147 in his last innings, against India. We wish him the very best for his future. This morning, I had meetings with ministerial colleagues...

Funeral Poverty: Trans-Pennine Rail Travel and Delays — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...for not just the person themselves but everyone involved in their day. Recently there have been more delays, more cancellations and more people stranded. In one instance, spectators trying to get to the cricket at Scarborough were turned back at Malton. For the county’s cricketing faithful, missing Scarborough festival is as close to sacrilege as it can get in Yorkshire. To put the...

Afghanistan - Question for Short Debate (4 Sep 2018)

Baroness Goldie: ...about half of the UK bilateral programme, which is directed through the Afghanistan reconstruction trust fund, is indeed intended to support infrastructure work. The noble Earl, Lord Sandwich, brought to our attention the role of sport in Afghanistan—particularly cricket, on which I completely defer to him as an expert and about which I know a negligible amount. That was an...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord McNally: the doorway is Sir Alec Douglas-Home, who was then the Government’s representative in Macmillan’s preliminary negotiations about joining the then Common Market. Sir Alec is standing there pristine in his cricket whites, with his cricket bat under his arm and his cap at a jaunty angle. The title of the cartoon is “Joining the Game”. One of the problems with...

National Lottery - Question for Short Debate (16 Jul 2018)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...making, which was mentioned this evening, and saving the capercaillie, which, as a Scotsman, brought a smile to my face, the lottery funds allotments in Angus, pottery in Port Talbot, theatre in Thurrock, bell-ringing in Belfast, wildlife in Westminster and cricket in Rugby. The noble Lord, Lord Beith, spoke about the importance of funding our historic buildings through the Heritage...

Listed Sporting Events — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (11 Jul 2018)

Margot James: ...the list to forge their own path. It is ultimately for the national sporting bodies to decide whether they want to try to maximise their returns or strike a balance with a potentially bigger audience. That was at the root of the cricket issue, on which the hon. Gentleman made a number of good points. The Government’s position is to not reopen the list of events, which we believe to...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

Rishi Sunak: ...everything else on offer. I must say that, when it comes to slipping requests, she clearly has a much better relationship with the Whips than I do, as my previous requests for various exemptions for cricket matches and tennis matches were firmly denied, so I have something to take up with the Whips in due course. I am glad that we have had a very constructive discussion today and that...

Rural Areas: Public Services - Question for Short Debate (9 Jul 2018)

Lord Haselhurst: .../15; col. 217.] I share his passion. Above all, the service paid to me by the noble Lord, Lord Lisvane, was the fact that he was the person who revealed the value of a smartphone in providing full ball-by-ball updates for all first class cricket matches. I feel greatly honoured that the noble Lord agreed to be my second supporter. In 1970 I became the Member of Parliament for Middleton and...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Vicky Ford: ...House look at the policy of flying the England flag on match days? It is obviously fantastic news that the England men’s football team have been so successful, but on Sunday the England women’s cricket team successfully defeated New Zealand in the final of the three nations series—Australia, New Zealand and England—and they go into the world cup this winter as the...

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

David Drew: ..., it is much more difficult to do so retrospectively, and that is where some problems may arise. For football to flourish, however, we need to allow it. I say this without a note of irony, but rugby supporters and cricket supporters can drink to their hearts’ content in the ground without anyone thinking that that is in any way alien. Anyone who takes a glass into a football ground...

Scottish Parliament: Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Week (21 Jun 2018)

Kezia Dugdale: ...are, there is a guided tour for four people behind the scenes with Jennie McAlpine to be won. We have a signed Scottish rugby shirt, and we even have a wicket from Scotland’s win against England at the cricket just a week or so ago.

We send our admiration and congratulations to them all.
