Disabled People: Football Grounds

Volume 705: debated on Monday 17 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What replies they have received from the Premier League and the Football League to the letters sent by the Minister for Sport in April 2008 regarding the provision of facilities for disabled supporters at football grounds. [HL5750]

The Government have not received any replies from the Premier League or the Football League to the Minister for Sport's letter. The letters asked both leagues to remind their member clubs about their obligations under disability discrimination legislation and urged them to ensure their stadiums complied with the Accessible Stadia Guidance. The letters did not specifically request a reply. However, the Minister will raise the issue when he next meets both parties.
