HC Deb 10 November 1976 vol 919 c188W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will issue a circular to chief constables of police on methods of crowd control based on a study of the successful methods practised by Chief Inspector Carter at Smethwick on the occasion of the Manchester United match at the Albion ground when 8,000 supporters were led to and from transport without incident.

Dr. Summerskill

No. Adequate arrangements already exist for the exchange of information between police forces about their experience of policing football matches, including methods of crowd control.
