In trouble with Mr Speaker!

November 2, 2018

I managed to get a few laughs in the Chamber yesterday following a disagreement with Mr Speaker!

I wanted to flag the success of England Hockey in hosting the Women's World Cup this summer, and how they can use that success to increase participation through the Hockey Futures Charity. Hockey is the sport that is my first love and actually that led me to meet my wife too!


When you're not on the Order Paper you have to ask questions that are relevant to the ones listed. I thought I'd made a genuine connection to a question about how hosting major tennis tournaments can lead to increased participation, and asked how hosting this major hockey event might do the same..


Apparently Mr Speaker disagreed (but let me get an answer anyway!)
