I’m a long time supporter of the charity Show Racism the Red Card and I chair the All Party Parliamentary Group. On the 25th June we had a bit of a football theme to the day in Parliament. In the morning I was launching, with colleagues from the Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Select Committee, our Bill to outlaw homophobic abuse at football grounds and in the afternoon I spoke in a debate on safe standing at football grounds to support the call for a change in current legislation to allow safe standing in the Premier League and Championship. So it was a good opportunity to also host a photo opportunity for MPs to show their support for Show Racism the Red Card outside Parliament.
