European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jun 2018)

Lord Spicer: ...recently. The word I want to use is “patriotism”. I do not mean the fascist form of wrapping yourself up in a flag; I mean a bit of sentiment—John Major’s warm beer and the shadows of the trees across the cricket pitches, the music of Elgar, the Trooping of the Colour—but that is not the essence. The essence of why I oppose staying in the European Union is...

Immigration: Hostile Environment - Motion to Take Note (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...friend is a fine example of the contribution the Windrush generation have made to their country. He rose through the ranks of the T&G to become the general secretary, he served as a director of the Bank of England and has been a director the England and Wales Cricket Board. Those are just some things he has done in his wonderful life. Swift action is welcome, but we should never have...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

David Mundell: There is one thing on which I agree with my SNP counterparts, which is on commending the Scottish cricket team for their momentous victory over England. My hon. Friend is right that we had all these discussions, on the nature of Scotland’s constitution and its relationship with the rest of the United Kingdom, in depth at the 2014 independence referendum. People voted decisively to...

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Pete Wishart: ...-deserved knighthood. There are weeks when you get a sense that the tectonic plates have shifted and things will never be the same again—and no, I am not referring to Scotland beating England at cricket. The people of Scotland have been observing this place very closely this week. They have seen this Government disrespecting our Parliament and treating its institutions with utter...

Foie Gras Imports (13 Jun 2018)

Henry Smith: ...many organisations and institutions that have banned the sale of foie gras. The UK Parliament, the BAFTAs, the BRIT awards, the Wimbledon tennis championships—I am sure that will please Mr Speaker—and Lord’s cricket ground have all stopped selling foie gras, as have caterers such as Compass Group and Brakes and retailers including Selfridges and Harvey Nichols here in...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (6 Jun 2018)

Chris Matheson: ...grass—to knock the ball away as often as she can between now and the summer recess, or between now and when the boundary review comes back. It is a bit like Geoffrey Boycott at the crease—I know you are a cricket lover, Mr Owen—knocking back every ball.

Scottish Parliament: Celebrating Scotland’s Volunteers (5 Jun 2018)

Michelle Ballantyne: ..., a flute band and a pipe band, which all teach the next generation of musicians. The common riding and agricultural show are organised and run by volunteers. The local war memorial and garden were built and are maintained by volunteers. The cricket, football, rugby, swimming, bowling and riding clubs are all delivered and run by volunteers. The two fantastic new play parks were created...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cricket (23 May 2018)

Edward Argar: ...Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what estimate he has made of the gross value added to the (a) UK and (b) East Midlands economy of (i) international and (ii) county-level cricket in the most recent year for which data is available.

Social Justice Commission: Serious Violence Strategy (22 May 2018)

David Lammy: ...achieve is the fact that there is the most fantastic extra- curricular work at the end of the school day. If someone is lucky enough to go to one of our public schools, for that 30 grand a year, the rugby, cricket, football, drama and swimming are tremendous. It has always surprised me that some of those very same Members—not all, but some of them—do not realise that a black...

Gaming Machines (17 May 2018)

Michael Tomlinson: Before I became a Member of Parliament, I met the then Secretary of State at the Hamworthy Club in Merley, which happens to be the cricket club that I play for, to discuss this very issue with local residents who were concerned about fixed odds betting terminals, and in particular their impact on vulnerable young men. I warmly welcome the statement and the impact that this will have on some...

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Anna Soubry: My friend Emma Agnew, a woman in her own right but also known as “Mrs Aggers” because she is married to the cricket commentator Jonathan Agnew, is one of a remarkable group of women who have faced breast cancer and beaten it, but it must be said that she had huge support from her husband, and our thoughts are also with my hon. Friend the Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (30 Apr 2018)

Chris Skidmore: More than 2,000 local residents signed my petition to protect Hanham cricket club from the threat of development, yet South Gloucestershire Council did not grant the site local green space designation in their policies, sites and places document due to a single objection from the landowner. Will the Minister confirm that, on its own, a landowner objection should not prevent treasured green...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Domestic Abuse (24 Apr 2018)

Phillip Lee: absolute priority. Last month, the Prime Minister launched the violence against women and girls strategy at No. 10, and following on from that I attended the first roadshow event, at Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham, to meet victims of domestic abuse and campaigners.[Official Report, 11 May 2018, Vol. 640, c. 12MC.]

Business of the House (29 Mar 2018)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: Cricket is under enormous threat at the moment, because of what has happened with Australia, which is unacceptable. It is our national game, and I also want to mention the British situation. Somerset county cricket club, of which we are all very proud—I am one of the MPs representing the county—has just taken on a chairman who has been done for price fixing in his company and...

Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2018 - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Desai: ...does much more business with India because, when German businessmen go to India, they go prepared. They go with a lot of knowledge, unlike British businessmen who presume that, because they speak English and play cricket, Indians will know what we need and how we need it. I have seen in action how far short British businessmen fall compared to continental businessmen. We need to get our...

Local Infrastructure (East Midlands) (20 Mar 2018)

Toby Perkins: ...the Spireites have a good new ground. The old rugby ground, where I used to run up and down, is now a housing estate called Rugby Drive; we have a very good rugby ground to replace it. The GKN cricket ground is also becoming a new housing estate. Chesterfield is a very attractive destination for house-building sites, but it faces many of the difficulties between residents and developers...

Burma: [Day 2] (15 Mar 2018)

Anna Soubry: The hon. Lady makes a very good point. Look, some people would argue that it is a miracle that 48% voted for the EU. Anybody who plays or watches cricket knows that before a game, they roll the pitch. We have taken a JCB digger to the pitch for the past 40 years. It is astonishing. On both sides, we have all blamed the EU for all our misfortunes: if something was difficult, we just blamed the...

Integrated Communities - Statement (15 Mar 2018)

Baroness Pinnock: ...on schools but also open to adults, and involved visits to mosques, gurdwaras and churches. Of course, all these additional activities need funding, and as funding disappeared, so, sadly, did the activities. But a few remain. There is an annual cricket match between Christian church leaders and Muslim imams, and interfaith activity continues, led by a Church of England bishop and a Muslim...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Moynihan: can be made early rather than the day before the season starts. I will conclude by saying that the Government should, in my view, focus not only on the impact of, say, professional players in cricket but also the impact on the business of sport. In cricket many first class counties rely on seasonal workers to deliver match day experiences, especially in the hospitality and stewarding...
