Standing Areas At Football Grounds

EDM number 121 in 2003-04, proposed by Mike Hancock on 26/11/2003.

That this House urges the Government to re-examine the case for introducing small, limited sections of safe standing areas at football grounds; further urges the Government to recognise that there is widespread support for such areas, and that improvements in stadium design and technology mean that, with rigorous safety specifications, standing areas could be safely re-introduce; and calls on the Minister concerned to convene a meeting of representatives of the police, supporters, Premier League clubs and the Football Licensing Authority to find a way forward.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
