Football Governance

Volume 459: debated on Monday 16 April 2007

16. To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, when she last met the football authorities to discuss governance of football. (131522)

I have met representatives of the Football Association to discuss governance of football on a number of occasions, most recently on 7 March 2007.

The proposals outlined by Lord Burns in his review of the FA were passed in October, when the FA Council voted to implement every single reform.

However, The FA shareholders must also approve them and I understand they are due to meet on 29 May.
