HC Deb 28 January 1902 vol 101 c1104

who had on the Paper the following question— To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether, seeing that the games of football and cricket are prohibited by statute in England on Sunday, steps will be taken to place football and cricket upon the same footing in this respect as lawn tennis and golf. said: The question has been altered, and I do not desire to publish it in its present form. May I say that I did not commit myself to the statement that Sunday football and cricket were prohibited by statute. I only asked for information.
