To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received regarding access to sporting events for people with disabilities, following publication of the Taylor report.

We have received no such representations. Better access for disabled people to sporting events was recommended in my review report "Building on Ability" published in August 1989. I believe that improvements to football grounds as recommended in Lord Justice Taylor's report provide the opportunity to improve access for disabled people to this type of sports facility.
