Department for Culture, Media and Sport written question – answered on 2nd November 2015.
Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, what discussions he has had with the Home Secretary on the potential effects of changes in the Merseyside Police mounted division on that forces' capacity to police football matches at Anfield and Goodison Park.
I have had no such discussions. Policing outside of sports stadia is a matter for individual clubs and the local police to determine. My Department has responsibility for ensuring the safety of spectators inside of sports stadia.
