HC Deb 10 March 1988 vol 129 c286W
Mr. Fallon

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will estimate the net annual costs to public funds of policing Football League matches.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

The information on which to base such an estimate is not available centrally. It is for police authorities to determine the charges for providing police officers for duty inside the ground and to ensure that, so far as possible, they recover the full cost.
