Harriet Harman MP, Labour’s Shadow Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, speaking as the British Open at Muirfield gets underway, said:
 
“After the recent successes of female sport it’s an embarrassment that this year’s British Open, a world class sporting event, is being held at a club which does not admit women members.
 
“It’s time that Muirfield dragged itself into the 21st Century and let women in. It’s time to ban men-only sport clubs.”
