HC Deb 09 February 1998 vol 306 c34W
Mr. Jim Murphy

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will make a statement on the(a) proportion of tickets available and (b) facilities for disabled supporters in each of the stadiums in which Scotland and England will play their first round World Cup matches. [27128]

Mr. Tom Clarke

I understand that the French World Cup organisers will set aside facilities for disabled supporters in the stadia at which matches will be staged. A decision on the number of tickets to be allocated for England and Scotland supporters will be taken shortly. The English and Scottish Football Associations have applied for tickets for existing members of the England Members Club and the Scottish Travel Club, who regularly attend away matches.
