Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 55 - PART 6: OVERVIEW AND INTERPRETATION (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: Does the format of how parachute payments are directly paid not imperil the Independent Football Regulator’s key objectives, which are to protect and promote the financial soundness of regulated clubs and financial resilience? The imbalance in parachute payments is driving clubs into making decisions that they would not usually take.

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 49 - Duty not to change crest, home shirt colours or name without approval (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: On the scope of the independent regulator, Liverpool football club tried to trademark the name “Liverpool”, which caused absolute outrage among Liverpool and Everton supporters and market traders. The local community fought back, and the supporters of both football clubs came together. Is something like that within the scope of the regulator’s ability to influence?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 46 - Duty not to dispose etc of home ground without approval (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: I beg to move amendment 3, in clause 46, page 38, line 15, at end insert— “(6A) Before the IFR grants an approval under subsection 6 it must— (a) consult the supporters of the body in question, the relevant competition organisers and persons representing the local community with which the body is associated; and (b) have regard to the views expressed by those consulted.”

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 46 - Duty not to dispose etc of home ground without approval (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Ms Nokes. Clause 46 is welcome, but I have real concern because, although we are again talking about supporter engagement, there is no mention of a requirement or even a power for the independent football regulator to consult any other parties about the disposal of the ground—often a community asset. If the Minister is not prepared to accept...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 45 - Duty not to operate a team in relation to a prohibited competition (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: It is always a very crowded field in the FA cup replays. I am sure that the Minister has seen the news, today I think, about Tottenham players getting on the plane to go to Australia for their end-of-season friendly. Is that not a smack right in the face of player welfare and ensuring that players are okay? That is why the FA cup replays were allegedly taken off the table.

Infected Blood Compensation Scheme (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: I pay tribute to my constituents whose lives were changed for ever and the many campaigners affected by this scandal, who have fought for so many years for truth and justice. From Hillsborough to the Post Office, the infected blood scandal and many more, we have watched the state and institutions cover up wrongdoing and blame the innocent, with no accountability. How long do we have to wait...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 27 - Duties to notify IFR of prospective new owner or officer (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: Further to the point made by the hon. Member for Chatham and Aylesford, what happens if the ownership is a nation state that does something falling within the remit of potential international criminality?

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 21 - Discretionary licence conditions (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: I thank the Minister for what he has said so far. I want to touch on a point for the clubs and, certainly, for supporters, having spoken to those of both Everton and Nottingham Forest, regarding profit and sustainability rules and the tariff that was served on them. At the moment, there seems to be zero confidence in the Premier League’s ability to govern that system and there are many...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Clause 21 - Discretionary licence conditions (21 May 2024)

Ian Byrne: For clarity, if the disquiet continues around the Premier League’s handling of the financial sustainability rules and the punishments it has meted out, and if the independent regulator believes it is not a fair and transparent system and that there are holes in the system, it can intervene.
