Health secretary Sajid Javid tweets “P**i is not banter” as pressure increases on Yorkshire

Yorkshire’s handling of the investigation into allegations of institutional racism by Azeem Rafiq will face further parliamentary scrutiny with the news that Roger Hutton, the club’s chairman, is to be called before the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) select committee.

In response, the health secretary, Sajid Javid, tweeted that “P**i is not banter”, adding that “heads should roll at Yorkshire”.

Julian Knight, the DCMS select committee chair, said in a statement to the Press Association that Hutton would be called “to give a much fuller explanation than we have had so far”. Knight previously wrote to Yorkshire urging them to publish the report in full – something the club have so far resisted doing so on the grounds of privacy and defamation.

“This is extremely concerning and it’s clear that Yorkshire County Cricket Club has questions to answer,” Knight said in response to the latest allegations. “We have monitored developments around the club’s handling of the serious allegations made by Azeem Rafiq.

“We want to see much greater transparency from YCCC – it is time for them to answer their critics. We intend to call the chair of the club before the DCMS Committee to give a much fuller explanation than we have had so far.”
