§ Mr. Pendry
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when his Department will be issuing the circular to police authorities with regard to the assessment of charging for the policing of football matches; and what criteria will be used in determining the full cost of providing police officers inside football grounds.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
We shall issue the circular as soon as we have considered the comments of the organisations that we are consulting on the draft. Charging criteria are a matter for police authorities.
