§ Mr. Ashton
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects to confirm his decision to extend the life of the pool betting duty relief announced in the 1990 Budget to provide funds to assist with the implementation of the Taylor report at football grounds.
§ Sir John Cope
My right hon. Friend the Chancellor will decide whether to extend the reduction in pool betting duty in the light of evidence from the Football League and football clubs that they have moved ahead with planning their own contribution to implementing the Taylor recommendations.
