12:30pm Parliament lockdown statement
The Prime Minister made a statement in Parliament today which, whilst wide-reaching, was much as expected and didn't cast any shadow or doubt on our plans to start our first Winter League bowling season.
As far as sporting matters are concerned it only appeared to impact on indoor sports which are no longer permitted whereas previously they could go ahead with a maximum of six participants.
For the present we continue with our plans to open the season next week on 29 September with the Test Day to be followed 7 days later with the first competitive team matches in Huddersfield in 2020.
We await with interest the televised broadcast by Boris Johnson which is scheduled for 8:00pm today to see if any more details are to be released which could impact on our plans.
