Hugh Robertson (Shadow Minister, Culture, Media & Sport; Faversham and Mid Kent, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions he plans to have with the Football Association on the implementation of the remaining conclusions of the Burns Review; and if he will make a statement.
Gerry Sutcliffe (Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Sport), Department for Culture, Media & Sport; Bradford South, Labour)
Many of Lord Burns' independent review recommendations designed to reform the FA's decision-making structure in order to make it a more modern, effective and representative governing body for football have been implemented by the FA, and I will continue to regularly discuss progress.
As part of the monitoring process of that report, the FA will review the changes they have put in place at Council, Board and Football Regulatory Authority level by 2012.
