All those who assist with voluntary youth football teams and have unsupervised access to children are checked and screened against the Criminal Records Bureau in the interest of child protection.

As part of one of the most comprehensive child protection processes in sport, 53,000 people, so far, have completed the Football Association's course in Child Protection and Best Practice. I am not aware of any representations to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State on this issue.
