Football: Terrorism

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has held discussions with the Scottish Executive on pro-terrorism chanting at football matches in Scotland; and if he will make a statement. (234887)

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I have had discussions with the Scottish Executive on a number of issues, however none specifically concerning chanting at football matches in Scotland.

Tackling such issues falls to the Scottish Football Association and Scottish football clubs, in conjunction with the police. Sport and policing are devolved matters.
