HC Deb 13 December 1989 vol 163 c729W
112. Mr. Ashton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment on what date he expects the provisions of the Football Spectators Act to be fully operational at all grounds.

Mr. Moynihan

We want the national membership scheme to be in place as soon as practicable. We will approve its introduction when we are satisfied that it will be effective, workable and safe. Against this background, it will be for the Football Membership Authority, in conjunction with the chosen supplier, to come forward with an acceptable timetable for implementation.
