Ex-Prime Minister Major Quits MCC Committee Over Lord’s Plans

Former U.K. Prime Minister John Major quit the committee of the Marylebone Cricket Club over a disagreement on the plan to redevelop the Lord’s cricket ground.

Major resigned the MCC panel because of “fundamental disagreements” over the way decisions were made about a proposal to expand capacity at the stadium and how to fund it.

“The solace the game has given me in good times and bad, the friendships I have made, and the sheer joy of the game will never fade,” Major said in an e-mailed statement. “My decision to resign from the committee of the world’s pre-eminent cricket club has been reached with very great sadness and I wish other members of the Committee well in their future deliberations.”

The committee last month decided to expand Lord’s on a stand-by-stand basis, and rejected plans made by property company Almacantar to pay 100 million pounds ($155 million) to develop part of the site.
