Business Statement: Free to view sport

There are a number of major sporting events that are free to view but the Champions League is not one. Last week I raised my concerns with the Leader of the Commons.

I was pleased by the supportive words put forward by the Leader of the House and I hope that we can move away from great sporting events being only accessible to those who can afford extra subscription fees. It is wrong that great events, such as Liverpool’s Champion League final later this month, can only be watched if you fork over money to BT Sport or travel to Kiev.
