Prime Minister’s Questions

Question from Mansfield MP Ben Bradley:

"Mr Speaker, local football clubs are hugely important to our communities. Mansfield Town is a fine example of a club that both works with and invests in our town.
Many sports clubs around the country have found their hopes of welcoming fans back to stadiums next month have been dashed.
Given that many football league clubs are so reliant on gate receipts to be viable can my right honourable friend assure me that he’ll do everything possible to support these clubs both as businesses but for the communities which rely on them too?”

Reply from Prime Minister Boris Johnson:

“Well Mr Speaker, I know what a passionate supporter my honourable friend is for Mansfield Town, and I can tell him, and by the way, I want to thank John and Carolyn Radford for all they have done for the club and I can tell him that the Secretary of state for culture, media and sport is in active consultation with clubs across the country to see what we can do to help.”


John Radford on social media:

My thanks to the Prime Minister for his remarks on our running of #Mansfield Town.
My gratitude is extended to Ben Bradley for highlighting in Parliament the need of support for football clubs during this challenging period.
