§ Mr. Macfarlane
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with the working of the Green Code; and if he is satisfied with the progress of the working party on football crowd control.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
I refer the hon. Member to the reply by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department on 19th December—[Vol. 902, c.862].—I am satisfied with the progress of my working party on crowd behaviour. There have been significantly fewer serious outbreaks of hooliganism since our revised and expanded recommendations were anounced at the beginning of this season. This is no reason for complacency, and my working party will keep the situation under continuous review.
