HC Deb 01 March 1973 vol 851 c392W
20. Mr. William Price

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will set up an inquiry into crowd behaviour at football matches.

Mr. Carlisle

This was the subject of a full inquiry in 1969 by Sir John Lang, whose report called for action mainly by the clubs. So far as the police were concerned, appropriate guidance was issued by the Home Office, and Lord Wheatley took the report into account in his more recent inquiry into crowd safety. In these circumstances my right hon. Friend sees no further for a further inquiry.
