HC Deb 04 July 1985 vol 82 c235W
53. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in relation to football grounds, he will take steps to ensure that, where wooden stands exist on the terraces, these areas should be no smoking areas.

Mr. Giles Shaw

The extent to which restrictions on smoking might contribute to safety against fire risks in football stadia is a matter within the terms of reference of the Popplewell committee of inquiry and I will arrange for the hon. Member's suggestion to be brought to the committee's attention.
