My Lords, has my noble friend visited the wonderful National Football Museum at Preston, which tells so well the story of women's football in this country, including the women's FA cup final in Preston in the 1920s, which attracted a crowd of 51,000? Will he note that the lack of women in football, especially at management level and in administration, could be remedied and that that would encourage women to participate? Will he consult the football unit of the economics department at Warwick University, which is concerned with that issue?
