Spectator safety at sports grounds remains the priority for Government. We are looking into any changes that may be needed, are in discussions with the football authorities and relevant stakeholders and are keen to carefully review the evidence on the matter. I look forward to discussing at length the nuances and complexities of sports ground safety in Parliament next week.
