United States: Foreign Policy - Motion to Take Note (18 Jan 2018)

Lord Taylor of Warwick: ...Plymouth to the new world of America in 1620, nearly 400 years ago. Although we share the English language, cultural differences between America and Britain manifest themselves from time to time. To my wife Laura, cricket means an insect she used to hear during the night in her home town of Dallas, Texas, whereas to me cricket is a fine summer game, played occasionally in between frequent...

Brexit: Deal or No Deal (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2018)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: now that dealing with the EU is actually very difficult. We started off these negotiations rather like someone playing tennis on a vicarage lawn, lobbing soft furry balls over the net. Unfortunately, what came back were cricket balls hurled with great vehemence and accuracy and designed to injure and break bones. I hope we have learned by now that negotiating with the EU is not going to...

Housebuilders - Motion to Take Note (11 Jan 2018)

Lord Horam: ...they would. I was once chairman of a housing association and I place great faith in them. They have done reasonably well but, none the less, they could do a lot better. I would make an analogy with Joe Root, the test cricket captain who makes very attractive 50s, 60s and 70s when what we need is centuries—and good centuries, and double centuries from time to time. They need to step...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Report (3rd Day) (10 Jan 2018)

Lord McNally: ...of state control of the press. I say to the noble Lord, Finkelstein, to look again at that headline and see whether he is still proud of it. Another Lord Attlee once said he only read one newspaper, the Times, and that was for the cricket scores. I am not sure he would trust the cricket scores these days. One pertinent item of briefing noble Lords will have had, and to which a number of...

Climate Change: Health - Motion to Take Note (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: ...and aviation pollution combine, as is shown in the studies at Heathrow. Recently India and China have experienced such bad air pollution in their cities that healthy sportsmen have collapsed on cricket pitches and in sports stadia. Some Governments have responded by taking special measures to close down industry and traffic for special events. Fortunately, we did not have to do that in the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: will be able to enjoy the games. On the subject of sporting successes, I would like to congratulate Sir Mo Farah on being named BBC sports personality of the year and the England women’s cricket team—we will not mention any other cricket team—on being named team of the year. I am sure the House will agree that both accolades are very well deserved. I have spent...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line (21 Dec 2017)

Paul Maynard: ... Applicant 20/02/2017* N/A 11/03/2017 Dr Challoner’s Grammar School 11/03/2017 Guild Hall St Mary’s Lichfield 25/05/2017 Bishops Itchington Primary School 25/05/2017 Holmer Green Cricket Club 06/06/2017* N/A 08/06/2017 West Euston Partnership 08/06/2017 Friends of the Earth (Birmingham) Ltd 08/06/2017 Wells House Road Residents Association ...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (13 Dec 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...UKAD is the recognised body in the UK with responsibility for enforcing anti-doping rules. But the Bill must not be used as a tool to limit interventions by internationally recognised sporting bodies, such as the England and Wales Cricket Board, the Football Association and the Rugby Football Union. They, like UKAD, should be allowed to set and enforce anti-doping rules in sports. The fact...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Nicholas Boles: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I am no cricket fan, but may I tell my right hon. Friend that that was a performance worthy of Geoffrey Boycott? May I ask her to clarify an important point? When it comes to the settling of the accounts—the second batch of payments—it is little understood among my constituents that these payments will be made over 20 or 30 years as they fall due, and that...

Plans to Improve the Natural Environment and Animal Welfare - Motion to Take Note (7 Dec 2017)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: ...with breathing issues, such as asthmatics, are particularly sensitive to the air pollution in cities. As we all saw last week, pollution can sometimes be bad enough to affect really healthy people, such as the cricket players in Delhi. I once, long ago, did a study in Lancashire and there was a headline in the local newspaper, “Air pollution stops play”. I could taste it...

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: ...Margaret and Richard in Parliament at an event organised by CRY—Cardiac Risk in the Young. Sadly, the reason they were there is that they lost their son, Tom Hardman, a talented local cricketer who died of sudden cardiac death. May we have a debate in Government time on the work done by CRY and how we might prevent the 600 such deaths every year?

South Middlesbrough: Traffic Congestion (6 Dec 2017)

Simon Clarke: ...tail. I know it well, because I grew up just beyond Stewart Park on the Grove, in Marton. Since 1984 I have spent more time sitting in that section of the crawl than I have any wish to think about. Passing Marton cricket club on the right, traffic next comes to the old Marton hotel and country club, which, sadly, closed in October. I will stop the metaphorical car here, and get out for a...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling and Alcoholic Drinks: Addictions (5 Dec 2017)

Tracey Crouch: sport could improve its offer of mental health support for elite and professional sportspeople. Professional players' associations (such as the Professional Footballers' Association or Professional Cricketers' Association) are well placed to raise awareness amongst their members about gambling and alcohol addiction, and to provide support to those that need it. Organisations like the...

Exports: Africa and the Commonwealth - Question for Short Debate (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Taylor of Warwick: ...glamorous, but LA was in fact lower Acton in west London. Eventually, he found his paradise: a bedsit room off the Paradise ring road near the gasworks in Birmingham. His big break came when he was signed to play professional cricket for Warwickshire. He was used to tropical rainstorms interrupting play, but on his debut for the county he had the experience of playing cricket during...

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: not know that area of Essex; Brentwood School is on hill, and Warley barracks is on the next hill. The Luftwaffe used to bomb Warley barracks regularly, but sometimes it got confused and bombed the school instead. When they dropped a bomb on the cricket pavilion, the deputy headmaster said to my father, who was on duty at the time, “Let it burn; we need a new pavilion.” That...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

Sajid Javid: We are unrivalled in art, culture and the creative industries. The NHS is the envy of countless nations. We have given the world everything from the steam engine to Shakespeare and even the glorious game of cricket. We may not be the biggest or the brashest, but Britain is, without doubt, the best country in the world in which to work, play, learn and live. A country with an...

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Valerie Vaz: ..., you were not here, but there were plenty of seats behind the Prime Minister at PMQs and during the Chancellor’s Budget speech, so there was no need to sit on the stairs. We debate in this Chamber, not sledge—that is for cricket matches. Sorry, I have forgotten something—there was one innovative thing in the Chancellor’s speech. He and the Government seem obsessed...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: misses the point that we will have left the European Union by 2022-23, that the implementation period will have ended, and that the whole concept of “own resources” will have ceased to exist. It is rather like spotting an error in “Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack”, which is very rare, and indicates a failing that I hope will be put right. I hope that we will...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (15 Nov 2017)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...find themselves unable to meet their bills and therefore get ejected from their homes, this Government will not know what has hit them. This is nothing to do with taxation but on one occasion, I found that one of my great boyhood heroes when I was a young cricketer, the wonderful spin bowler from the West Indies, Sonny Ramadhin, happened to be a publican in the town that I represented. The...

Scottish Parliament: Sport and Leisure Sector (Barclay Review Recommendations) (15 Nov 2017)

Daniel Johnson: ...because of those changes. However, tonight’s debate is primarily about sports clubs and ALEOs. In my constituency, two such sports clubs will potentially be impacted by the possible change to their rates bills: Carlton cricket club and the Inch park community sports club. I hope that Carlton cricket club barely needs an introduction; it is the home of Scottish cricket. Cricket is the...
