Professional Football: Salaries

Volume 471: debated on Monday 28 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will bring forward legislative proposals to increase levels of transparency of salaries paid by professional football clubs. (182032)

There are currently no plans to bring forward legislation in this area. Salaries are a matter for individual clubs and the Football authorities.

I have been clear, however, that football must find the right balance between its commercial and sporting sides if it is to secure its long-term success and stability.
