Antony raised the importance of Burnley Football Club to our local economy.
Commenting after bringing the attention to the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Sport he said:
We're so lucky in Burnley and Padiham to have our own community club - one which plays at the highest level and one which contributes to filling our local pubs, restaurants and hotels.
And as we start to reopen the economy I know that the safe return of fans is so important to people. That's why I asked the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Sport what measures we can take to get fans back in line with the cautious roadmap set out by the Prime Minister.
Part of that is the vaccine delivery programme but also rapid testing. Because just like you, I look forward to the day when we can get back on the Turf!
