Lifting Of Sports Ban From Macmillan College Middlesborough

EDM number 236 in 1991-92, proposed by Tim Devlin on 21/11/1991.

That this House notes with considerable satisfaction the decision by Cleveland School Sports Council to reverse its mean and vindictive ban on participation in County Sport by Macmillan College, Middlesbrough; further notes that this will enable the school to take on its neighbours in competitive sport and will enable talented youngsters to play sport for their town; further notes that this change of heart has only come about because of the embarassment of the national Labour Party in the Langbaurgh by-election when they had previously regarded the matter with indifference in spite of a Langbaurgh child being banned from playing for Middlesbrough; regrets that the School Sports Council made their recent decision only after great pressure from parents, the local press and honourable Members of this House; and further regrets that Richard Holt is not still alive to see this end to victimisation take place.

This motion has been signed by a total of 6 MPs.
