Girls and women playing football call from MP Tracey Crouch

Tracey Crouch has been booted off the Parliamentary football team, because she is a woman which is not allowed under FA rules, which now apply to the squad.

But the MP for Chatham and Aylesford claimed girls and women should be encouraged to play the national sport.

She later spoke to Alistair Darling and Lord Howard during a Daily Politics debate on the rules which stop her playing football with other MPs.

Each week, the Daily Politics offers a platform to a famous person to make a film with their views on a subject before debating them in the studio.
