Scottish Parliament: Scottish Education System (7 Dec 2022)

Brian Whittle: ...activities. I often note that a big difference between private schools and state schools is that, if I walk past a private school, I notice that the pupils are tripping over cellos and hockey sticks. There is the same level of teaching and teachers, but those pupils have more opportunities. Scottish Conservatives would close the attainment gap by offering those opportunities for all. When...

Health Promotion Bill [HL] - Second Reading (2 Dec 2022)

Lord Storey: ...my home city of Liverpool—a number of noble Lords spoke about this issue—the facilities are mainly geared to a handful of sports. For example, football, in the main, predominates; I do not see hockey pitches or netball courts there. It is also very unfair to women, as the facilities are mainly for men. If you go to other facilities in the local cricket clubs or tennis clubs, you...

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women and Girls (Men’s Role in Eradication) (30 Nov 2022)

Paul O'Kane: .... I want to touch on the specific issue that exists in sport because of the public platform and adulation that accompany success for many men in the sporting arena. Athletes, footballers and ice hockey players can be heralded as idols and viewed by their younger supporters as role models whom they look up to and would seek to emulate. That raises the crucial issue of how sexual misconduct...

National Women’s Sports - Question for Short Debate (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...year-olds. The UK’s honours system can provide a way of recognising stellar sporting achievement and moments of national celebration. Examples of this include the MBEs awarded to the GB women’s hockey team who won gold at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016 and the damehood awarded to Dame Laura Kenny as a result of her becoming the most successful female cyclist in Olympic history following...

Points of Order (16 Nov 2022)

Emma Hardy: ...of a very poor quality, stating only that the claim is in progress and there is no timeframe for a decision, or that people will be contacted in due course. The members of the Hull Seahawks ice hockey club are currently waiting for an update on a visa for one of their players; they have been waiting for more than two months, and are now halfway through the season without a much-needed...

European Women’s Football Championship: Girls and Young Women (9 Nov 2022)

Alex Davies-Jones: .... As we have heard, unequal access to sports in schools is holding us back. Currently, instead of being taught to play football, girls are instead taught comparable sports, such as netball or hockey. According to Sport England, only 63% of all schools currently offer equal access to girls’ football in PE lessons. In 2022, that is outdated and outrageous. We call on the Government to...

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (8 Nov 2022)

Amy Callaghan: .... She was 65 years old when she first experienced pains in her abdomen—the first symptoms of her pancreatic cancer. She had not long retired, having been a PE teacher for 40 years. She played hockey for Scotland. She was fit, active and not overweight; she ate healthily, did not smoke, drank in moderation and walked her dog every morning. Barbara saw her GP within a week of first having...

Future plans for investment include improved archery facilities and the expansion of the Royal British Legion Battleback programme which...

Ban on Fracking for Shale Gas Bill (19 Oct 2022)

Olivia Blake: ...the debate on climate change was about the science and about whether global heating is caused by humans. It is important to say, however, that although the climate deniers argued about science and hockey stick graphs, that was not what gave their arguments momentum. Let us be clear. There has long been overwhelming evidence that human CO2 emissions are causing global heating. The motor of...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Major cultural and sporting events: Major cultural and sporting events (21 Sep 2022)

Sadiq Khan: ...the Assembly Member can understand, some event bids need to remain confidential. However, there are a number of events that we are looking at that are already in the public domain including FIH Hockey World Cup 2026. We are working with England Hockey who are leading a bid across London and Wales. If successful, this bid would see two London stadiums staging matches, the Stoop and...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Sep 2022)

Lord Wrottesley: .... A graphic example of this is the several messages that I have received in the past 24 hours. For the sake of brevity, I shall read just one, which is from the president of the International Ice Hockey Federation, Mr Luc Tardif, who said, “It is with immense sadness and regret that we have learned of the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. All of us are deeply saddened by these events and...

Commonwealth - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2022)

Lord Bilimoria: ...Games in Birmingham in July and August this year, and the university will play a role like never before. At the heart of the Games, the athletes’ village is on our campus, as are squash and hockey. We sponsored the baton relay that went around 76 countries and territories of the Commonwealth, and a non-Commonwealth country; it went to Dubai in the UAE, where I was present for the opening...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sports: West Midlands (29 Jun 2022)

Nigel Huddleston: ...opportunities to all. Since 2018, the department has also invested £333,674 into a wide range of grassroots sport projects across Wolverhampton through Sport England, such as to the Finchfield Hockey Club and Ormiston New Academy. This is part of the £23.2 million invested in the West Midlands during the same period. The Government also invests £18 million each year in community sport...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Rapid reductions in London’s carbon emissions: Rapid reductions in London’s carbon emissions (6 Jun 2022)

Sadiq Khan: ...these policies in place. Although we may not get the progress in terms of on a pro rata basis over the next eight years, the halfway point by 2024, once you start these things moving it is like a hockey stick curve; it really does go up swiftly. That is why it is really important to get the foundations right and that is why the London Recovery Board having as one of its nine missions the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (16 May 2022)

Lord Bilimoria: ...of these Games, with the athletes’ village in the university and with the baton relay being sponsored by us going to all 72 Commonwealth countries and territories around the world as we speak. Hockey and squash are also taking place at the university and there is a business event at our exchange building in the middle of Birmingham. I have been president of the CBI for nearly two years...

Physical Education (23 Mar 2022)

Jonathan Gullis: ...a rounded education, not just through debating, LAMDA and drama, but physical education. I remember that Wednesdays from one o’clock meant games for the entire year group. A variety of football, hockey, rugby, netball and many other sports would be available to us for two to three hours. That meant we were getting high-quality physical education from fantastic teachers, such as Mr...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Final Stage (9 Mar 2022)

Justin McNulty: ...Wong from Malaysia and Davy Lo from Hong Kong. Through Aidan O'Rourke, our outside-the-box-thinking English teacher, the Abbey played sporting contests versus Newry High School at Newry Olympic Hockey Club's pitch: one half GAA and one half hockey. I will not tell you who won the GAA and who won the hockey, but I can say that the Abbey won on aggregate score. I will give way.

Scottish Parliament: International Women’s Day 2022 (8 Mar 2022)

Sue Webber: ...fabulous women while studying at the University of Edinburgh. However, it was not science and healthcare that brought us together; it was sport. We all met through Edinburgh University Women’s Hockey Club. Sadly, sport is never given the focus that it deserves in the chamber despite the positive impact that it has on many lives. For me, it has provided unconditional friends for life. The...
