REPLY FROM MP HUGH ROBERTSON OFFICE part 2
Jun 21, 2013 — The Government recognise that football governance needs reforming and, whilst the Government has urged the football authorities to take ownership of the governance of the game, they will look at bringing forward legislation, if football does not make sufficient progress.
The Government welcomes the recent report from the Select Committee on football governance which shows the will there is across Parliament for football to modernise and change for the better. Ministers have been clear that they want the football authorities to carry out the reforms they promised by the start of the 2013-14 season – most notably around improved governance and diverse representation at the FA, the development of a licensing system and greater financial transparency.
