HC Deb 13 March 1998 vol 308 c369W
Mr. Spring

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the range of penalties available to courts in respect of those subject to restriction orders as a result of offences related to football matches who failed to attend designated police stations. [34274]

Mr. Michael

Section 16 of the Football Spectators Act 1989 sets out the effect of a restriction order and provides for the offence of failure to comply with the duty to report. A person who fails to report to a police station without reasonable excuse is liable on conviction to a term of imprisonment of up to one month or a level 3 fine (currently £;1,000) or both.
