HC Deb 03 March 1976 vol 906 cc603-4W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received about the current financial problems of football league clubs; and what replies he has given.

Mr. Denis Howell

I have received no specific representations on this subject recently, but I have had many discussions with people in the football world about the financial problems involved in improving football grounds. I gave the House details last June of the Football Grounds Improvement Trust which has been formed to help football clubs to overcome such problems.
