HC Deb 05 December 1991 vol 200 c219W
Mr. Bill Michie

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will review the powers of the police to determine the day and time football matches are to take place.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

No. The scheduling and kick-off time of football matches are a matter for the football authorities, which very sensibly will wish to respect the advice of the police and the other emergency services.
