asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to incidents at Highbury on Sunday last when crowds were queueing for semi-final cup tickets; and whether he will take all necessary steps to provide the police with adequate powers to control crowds both outside and inside football grounds.

I have seen a police report on this incident. It affords no ground for suggesting that the police need additional powers.
