Homophobia in Sport (30 Nov 2016)

Tracey Crouch: ...a number of other actions to ensure that all under-represented groups can take part in sport and wider physical activity. One of the actions was to ask Baroness Grey-Thompson to carry out an independent review of the duty of care that sport owes to all its participants at all levels. The review is wide-ranging, but I have specifically asked the Baroness to consider any particular issues...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education and Research Bill: Rating the quality and standards of higher education (11 Oct 2016)

Gordon Marsden: ...to the consultation it is rightly noted that the original judgements”— the original judgments were “meet expectations”, “excellence” and “outstanding”— “were hopelessly indistinguishable…. Perhaps this is a case of grade deflation… Passing one’s QAA review was supposed to be something of a ‘gold...

Written Ministerial Statements — Ministry of Defence: Long Service and Good Conduct Medal (11 Oct 2016)

Michael Fallon: I am today announcing that with effect from 29 July 2014, the Long Service and Good Conduct Medal will be made available to officers who have served 15 years clear of any disciplinary entry on their Service Record. This meets the intention set out in a Written Ministerial Statement which was tabled in the House of Lords at the conclusion of Sir John Holmes’ Review of Military Medals by...

Defence: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Hutton of Furness: ...a similar role and do it as well and as credibly? I pay tribute to the last coalition Government and to the work of the Liberal Democrat Ministers in persuading the Government to conduct the alternatives to Trident review. If anyone really wants to find an answer to some of these complicated issues of whether there is a better or cheaper way to maintain the vital national security interest...

Olympic Games: Doping (6 Jul 2016)

Tracey Crouch: ...hiding place for any athlete who chooses to cheat. On the point made by the hon. Member for Motherwell and Wishaw, the IOC’s “Olympic Agenda 2020” recommends that athletes who lose out on a medal to athletes who test positive receive their medals. I sincerely hope that the IOC takes forward that recommendation. The honourable thing would be to retrospectively take away a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (27 Jun 2016)

David Hanson: Will the Minister undertake an urgent review of the awards of the Légion d’Honneur? I have many constituents who were awarded the Légion d’Honneur by the French authorities and who notified the Ministry of Defence more than a year ago, but have still not received their medals. Will the Minister look at that urgently?

Sport: Anti-doping - Question (23 May 2016)

the Earl of Courtown: My Lords, my noble friend makes a very good point. Those who cheat do not deserve the medals that they have been awarded. As my noble friend will be aware, once cheats have been uncovered, Olympic Agenda 2020 allows those who were behind them in the race or in the swimming pool to receive those medals. As far as criminalisation is concerned, the review is continuing and we will report on it....

Armed Forces Bill: Review of sentence following offer of assistance (11 May 2016)

Penny Mordaunt: ...to be brief, Madam Deputy Speaker, as this is not a contentious issue. I hope you, Madam Deputy Speaker, will allow me briefly to update the House. Our team in the Invictus games so far has a medal total of 89, 55 of which were won on the first day of the competition. One of our chief cheerleaders is my hon. Friend the Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans, who has taken through this...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Military Decorations (25 Apr 2016)

Matthew Hancock: An independent review undertaken by Sir John Holmes estimated the costs of producing a national defence medal to be £475million. This was based on an approximate figure of 7 million recipients who had completed four years of regular or Reserve Service, or completed national service (back to 9 September 1945), and 100% take up. There are no current plans to reconsider the award of the...

Backbench Business: National Defence Medal (12 Apr 2016)

Rob Wilson: ...to be carefully weighed up when making the decision. There is a strong lobby in the military for not making the changes, as well as the one we are getting from veterans about the national defence medal. The Government’s job is to try to make decisions about where the line falls in a fair and honourable way, and that is not easy. We will upset one group of people whichever decision we...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: *No heading* (1 Apr 2016)

Earl Howe: We have enormous admiration and respect for the unique contribution and sacrifice made by bomber aircrew who served outside of the UK. Sir John Holmes, in his Military Medals Review, specifically included a reconsideration of recognition for Bomber Command, although he recommended not to award medallic recognition to those who flew from outside the UK. This decision was made independently of...

English National Anthem (13 Jan 2016)

Toby Perkins: ...Association, the Rugby Football Union, England Netball and any other sporting bodies that have athletes or teams of athletes representing England and inform them that the English national anthem should be used in the event that a piece of music is required prior to the contest or at the awarding of medals. Once the Bill has been passed it will be for the Secretary of State to decide what...

National Lottery — Motion to Take Note (17 Dec 2015)

Baroness Heyhoe Flint: ...Seoul in 1988 and Barcelona in 1992, but achievements post-lottery funding for elite sport include Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000. Apart from the elite lottery funding, we have heard that Britain zoomed from 36th in the medal table in Atlanta in 1996 up to third place in the Paralympics and Olympics in London. In those 21 years, the total sum of lottery funding of £34 billion has...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Veterans: Military Decorations (14 Dec 2015)

Mark Lancaster: The Committee on the Grant of Honours, Decorations and Medals (HD Committee) examined the proposals to institute a National Defence Medal (NDM) as part of the independent Military Medals Review in July 2014. The Committee was not persuaded that a strong enough case could be made at the time. Therefore the Department has no current plans to introduce a NDM for veterans. At the conclusion of...

Sport: Exclusion of Drugs — Question for Short Debate (19 Nov 2015)

Lord Moynihan: ...cheats. The head of WADA, Craig Reedie, quickly and publicly disagreed with his own independent commission, further compounding the mixed messages coming from WADA. Has he forgotten that clean athletes have been denied their medals? Competing chemists’ laboratories work around the clock to boost the chances of their athletes through drug-induced cheating. Now we know that...

Advertising Standards Authority — Question for Short Debate (29 Oct 2015)

Lord Lipsey: ...then, I have been a serial complainer against ads that seem to me to offend against the code. Indeed, I was told a while ago that I was in the top 10 complainers in Britain, and I expect to take the gold medal before too long. This role of complainer gives me some sympathy with the noble Baroness. I reckon that I have a hit rate of about 90% with my complaints—that is not surprising,...

Sport — Motion to Take Note (15 Oct 2015)

Lord Moynihan: ...be a little more flexible, to take into account, not least, the Rugby World Cup. I hope that can be done, because I would hate to think that we were overly time-constrained on what is a vitally important review, which was initiated in this House and is placed on the face of the legislation. As for doping in sport, I have to say to my noble friend the Minister that I was interested to hear...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: World War II: Military Decorations (22 Sep 2015)

Philip Dunne: The general principle of 'double medalling' remains extant. The issue of a medal for those who served on Arctic Convoys was looked at by Sir John Holmes in his Review of Military Medals, which was conducted independently of the Ministry of Defence. Sir John's recommendation was that an award (the Arctic Star) would be appropriate and this was agreed by the Committee on the Grant of Honours,...
