Kent MP Tracy Crouch told about playing football in the House of Commons



A group of deputies were told to play football in the lower house.

Among them was Chatham and Iylford and former sports minister Tracy Crouch.

They were to play for the British women's parliamentary football club, but had to give up their first game as they would clash with the vote.

After the position for the pictures in their new set, Hannah Bardell of the SNP was shot as if she was holding on.

They now have written a letter of apology to President John Berkow, who said: "I was noticed that some football skills were shown in the chamber last night after the House has grown.

"I am informed that the duty payers told the affected members that the chamber was not a place for this activity, but those gatekeepers were advised that the permit was given.

"Let me assure the house that that permission certainly did not come from me."

He added: "I have received merciful, really fulfilled, apologetic letters from (Mrs. Crouch, Ms. Paun and Ms. Hai) regarding this incident.

"I think I can speak to all of us when I say that our historical chamber should not be used for this kind of activity and I gently remind my colleagues if they want to use the chamber outside the sitting hours away in order to simply show the guests, they should sincerely write to me asking their request to be reviewed.

"I said what I said, there is no hard feeling, and I think the issue is closed."
