To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what powers there are to allow courts to impose restriction orders and exclusion orders on football hooligans.

Since August 1987 part IV of the Public Order Act 1986 has empowered courts to impose exclusion orders on those convicted of football-related offences as defined in that Act to prevent them from attending designated matches in England and Wales. Since 24 April 1990 the courts have been empowered by part II of the Football Spectators Act 1989 to impose restriction orders on those convicted of football-related offences as defined in that Act to prevent them from attending key matches outside England and Wales. From 1 June 1990 magistrates courts have had the power under the 1989 Act to impose restriction orders on those convicted of corresponding offences in Scotland or Italy.
