EU Exit Negotiations: Loneliness Strategy (15 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: We are working very closely with the DWP on some of these initiatives. We do actually see it as one of our front-line providers of solutions on tackling loneliness across the board. I would be very interested to hear more about the scheme that the hon. Gentleman mentions, and, if he would like to write to me, I will look further into it.

EU Exit Negotiations: Loneliness Strategy (15 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: A colleague from the Home Office is part of the group. Refugees and others within the immigration system were actually considered as part of the strategy, so I encourage the hon. Lady to look at the report in detail to see how we are tackling that particular issue. Like her, I commend all the organisations out there that are getting together in imaginative and creative ways to reach parts of...

EU Exit Negotiations: Loneliness Strategy (15 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: We published the civil society strategy before the loneliness strategy very much on purpose in order to create a framework to support important members of civil society that will then help us with many of the initiatives to tackle loneliness. In that strategy, we purposely looked at place, frameworks and everything else to which the hon. Lady alludes. With regard to the project in her...

EU Exit Negotiations: Loneliness Strategy (15 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: On the hon. Lady’s last point, the Secretary of State is sitting on the Treasury Bench, so I am sure that that will be added to his list of things to ask the Chancellor. I completely agree that libraries play an important role. Over the last few years, they have evolved into bigger and greater community hubs, and have become more diverse in what they offer. My local authorities—I have two...

EU Exit Negotiations: Loneliness Strategy (15 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I like a challenge, Mr Speaker, but there is no way I am repeating that! Obviously, I support the work of the hon. Gentleman’s constituency organisation. With reference to the Barnett formula, there is nothing in this strategy relating to that, but I am sure that colleagues from other Departments will have heard his question.

EU Exit Negotiations: Loneliness Strategy (15 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I should like to make a statement on the publication of the Government’s landmark strategy to tackle loneliness. This is a very emotional statement to make. I am standing here at the Dispatch Box with a clear line of sight to the coat of arms representing our colleague who took this issue of loneliness and catapulted it into the stratosphere. I have dedicated a brief nine months to...

Business of the House: Youth Violence (10 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I thank the hon. Member for Lewisham, Deptford (Vicky Foxcroft) for bringing this subject to the Floor of the House. I also thank Mr Speaker for granting the debate on a sensitive but important issue. It might surprise the House to hear this ministerial confession, but I read the interim report of the Youth Violence Commission in preparation for this debate. I can honestly say, as the...

Business of the House: Youth Violence (10 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for that. I am now something of an expert on cross-departmental strategies, having been the Minister responsible for the sports strategy, which involves 10 Departments, for the Office for Civil Society strategy, which involves numerous Departments, and for the forthcoming loneliness strategy, which covers nine Departments. I therefore completely appreciate and...

Business of the House: Youth Violence (10 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I would not dream of inadvertently misleading the House by trying to respond to a question for another Department to which I would not know the answer. However, there is a Home Office official in the Box this evening, and they will be able to provide a written response to the hon. Lady’s questions. I am sure that Home Office questions are also just around the corner. An essential part of...

Business of the House: Youth Violence (10 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: That is the reason for the review of the statutory guidance. This is provided by local authorities, but we do recognise that there is a difference of service delivery across the board, which is why we are having a look at it as part of the civil society strategy.

Business of the House: Youth Violence (10 Oct 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I meet regularly with a whole variety of faith groups on a number of different issues, not just as a Minister, but, of course, in my own constituency. I completely recognise and value the work that faith groups do, especially when they work in partnership with many other different organisations. Let me talk a bit more about the funding that is available. At present, DCMS, together with the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Grassroots Sport Funding (6 Sep 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I meet the football authorities on a regular basis to discuss a variety of matters, including to ensure that grassroots sport and community projects are better supported than ever before.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Grassroots Sport Funding (6 Sep 2018)

Tracey Crouch: The FA has been putting a significant amount of money into grassroots sport over a number of years, and the hon. Gentleman will be well aware that I have negotiated more than £100 million a year of investment into grassroots sport from the premier league, which is double the previous amount, and I am confident that the FA, regardless of whether the sale of Wembley goes through, will continue...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Grassroots Sport Funding (6 Sep 2018)

Tracey Crouch: Non-league football is incredibly important in the pyramid of football and many colleagues support their own constituency football clubs, and rightly so because often more vibrant football is played at community level. I would encourage my hon. Friend’s football club to look at Football Foundation funding and talk to Sport England about further investment in its facilities.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Grassroots Sport Funding (6 Sep 2018)

Tracey Crouch: Not only did I see Gary’s evidence, but I was sat behind him throughout it and gave evidence subsequently to the Committee. I look forward to reading the report when it comes out. The FA has made it very clear publicly and to the Committee that it does not need to sell Wembley stadium for financial reasons. It thinks this is a good opportunity to invest in the long term for grassroots...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (6 Sep 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I will certainly do that. I thought that yesterday’s wildcard picks were very sensible, bringing in a level of experience to the rookie team that had automatically qualified. As part of my ministerial duties, I look forward to supporting the team in Paris.

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: As always, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Mr Jack) for leading today’s debate, which follows the recent Adjournment debate tabled by the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon). I am grateful to the hon. Member for Wyre Forest (Mark Garnier) for his intervention. He contributed to the...

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful for my hon. Friend’s clarification, but it is not just about the cost; it could also be about the accommodation. We are looking at the issue and, as I said at the outset, the Secretary of State and I both support the inclusion of shooting, but as core partners in the delivery of the Commonwealth games, we must ensure we deliver a cost-effective games. These are not necessarily...

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I do not disagree with the hon. Gentleman or with my hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway, but there are logistical and cost challenges. They are not necessarily ones that we cannot overcome, and both Members are right to place their points on the record, to ensure that anyone reading this debate, particularly from the Commonwealth Games Federation, understands that there is a...

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games: Shooting (27 Jun 2018)

Tracey Crouch: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. We can further discuss the assumptions in his point after the debate. In selecting optional sports, the games partners have to take into account the four considerations I just outlined while complying with the athlete and team official quota restrictions set by the Commonwealth Games Federation, which is one of the assumptions my hon. Friend alluded to. The...
