Leicester City raised at Business Innovation and Skills Questions

Posted on May 3rd, 2016 in Local News

Keith raised Leicester City’s Premier League victory at Business Innovation and Skills questions on Tuesday 3rd May.

He said:

“Will the Secretary of State join me and other Leicestershire MPs as well as many throughout the world in congratulating Leicester City football club on winning the premier league yesterday? Does he agree that this will boost jobs not just in Leicester but in the midlands region, and not just for those interested in football but for those in tourism? Does he accept that rather than Red Leicester, it is actually Blue Leicester?”

Sajid Javid replied: “I like the sound of Blue Leicester—I like it very much—but let me congratulate the right hon. Gentleman and, most of all, his constituents on their stunning victory last night, which I think the whole nation is celebrating. I suggest he make the most of it while he can.”
