During the Prime Minister Questions a week and a half ago on the 8th March one of the questions arose from Lia Nici, the Conservative MP for Great Grimsby. This was her question and the response from the Prime Minister. The information regarding the football event that she related to can be obtained from this location and also this location on line. The game took place at 2.15 this afternoon and tragically for Grimsby and their MP Lia Nici, the Brighton & Hove Albion won 5:0. So here are the question and answer during the Government just over 10 days ago.
Lia Nici: Grimsby Town football club have reached the quarter finals of the FA cup. The last time the team achieved this was in 1939, which by coincidence was the previous time the town had a Conservative MP. Grimsby beat the Prime Minister’s team, Southampton, to get to this next stage, but will he join me in congratulating the team and wishing them the best of luck when they play against Brighton & Hove Albion?
Rishi Sunak: Although it pains me, I congratulate my hon. Friend and Grimsby Town on their victory over Southampton. I now have a new team to support in the cup, and my hon. Friend will have my full support. I wish Grimsby well in their next match, and I look forward to cheering with my hon. Friend and all her colleagues.
