HC Deb 30 April 1984 vol 59 c40W
Mr.John Carlisle

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce measures to make it unlawful for local authorities to deny for political reasons the use of their sporting facilities to British citizens of whatever origin; and if he will make a statement.


No. It is for local authorities to decide how they administer their own sports facilities. I hope that they will continue to use their powers reasonably and without discrimination against individuals for political reasons.
