§ Mr. Pendry
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage (1) what representations he has received from the Rugby Football League about their ground safety plans;
(2) when he last met representatives of the Rugby Football League; and what matters were discussed.
§ Mr. Sproat
I met Mr. Rodney Walker, chairman, and Mr. Maurice Lindsay, chief executive, of the Rugby Football League on 22 November 1993 to discuss the funding of safety improvements at Rugby Football League grounds. I have received no further representations from the Rugby Football League since then, although I have had since further informal discussions.
