HC Deb 02 June 1960 vol 624 cc155-6W
57. Mr. Mason

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that there is a general desire to allow football matches to be played on Sundays, and that the Football Association has recently decided to recognise Sunday football games; and whether he will now consider amending the law to allow football to be played on Sundays, particularly in aid of charities, allowing a charge for admission.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have seen reports about an alteration of the Football Association's rule about Sunday football. I have at present no statement to make about any amendment of the law on this highly controversial subject.
