§ Mr. Hurd
The Association of Chief Police Officers for England and Wales has now collected figures for attendances and arrests at Football League matches, and ejections from grounds, during the 1985–86 season. The figures for divisions 1 and 2, with comparable statistics for the 1984–85 season, are as follows:547W
The reduction in arrests was in fact slightly greater than I indicated in the reply given to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Bradford, North (Mr. Lawler) on 4 June at columns 564–65.
