HL Deb 02 November 1989 vol 512 cc389-90

8A Line 13, at end insert ("and (c) provided that such body corporate includes representatives of the Professional Footballers' Association and representatives from the Football Supporters' Association.").

Lord Graham of Edmonton

My Lords, I beg to move Amendment No. 8A. I simply add this. I spoke fully about that part of my amendment which deals with football supporters. In my amendment I also draw attention to another element in football which your Lordships' House may think is important; that is, the players. I honestly believe that the principle that at the top table there should be someone who represents the views of supporters and players is sufficiently important for me to press this matter to a vote.

Moved, That Amendment No. 8A, as an amendment to Commons Amendment No. 8, be agreed to. —(Lord Graham of Edmonton.)
