Motion text

That this House notes the passion and excitement during the first weekend of the Six Nations Rugby Championship 2019 and the contribution made by stadium workers to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all fans; further notes that the tournament would not be possible without those workers at the Principality Stadium, Murrayfield and Twickenham Stadium; observes that the current broadcasting deal for the tournament is worth more than £50 million and that many of those workers earn less than the real living wage as calculated by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation; believes that the Principality Stadium, Murrayfield and Twickenham Stadium as anchor institutions in their local communities should pay the real living wage; further believes that the Welsh Rugby Union, the Rugby Football Union and the Scottish Rugby Union should meet Citizens UK to discuss accreditation as living wage employers following the lead of Premiership football clubs Liverpool FC, Everton FC, Chelsea FC, West Ham United FC and EFL League One side Luton Town FC.
