asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from the local chief constable on the incident in which coaches of a train travelling from Luton to London after the Luton Town versus Chelsea football match on Saturday 11th January were set on fire; and if he will make a statement.

The British Transport Police are making inquiries into this incident. They have descriptions of four youths whom they wish to interview. It would not be appropriate for me to comment further while the investigation is proceeding.
