Fixture Lists

Volume 448: debated on Monday 3 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if her Department will bring forward measures to ensure sports can gain copyright to their fixture lists as recommended by the Independent Sports Review. (81103)

The first step following publication of the review is for all interested parties to consider its recommendations very carefully before deciding whether these should be implemented and, if so, how.

My officials and legal advisors are consulting with other Government Departments, the football authorities and other interested sporting bodies. I intend to respond formally to the review in September.
