HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 c278W
Mr. Canavan

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what subjects he has discussed at meetings with the Football Association over the past year.

Mr. Macfarlane

In the past year I have discussed many aspects of football with the Football Association. These range from World Cup pre-planning to the state of football, its attendances and so on. The dominant theme in all our discussions has, however, centred on the major problem of football hooliganism both in this country and abroad.
