Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee Evidence Session on inquiry into the issue of accessibility at sports stadia

In today's Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee Evidence Session, evidence was taken from Justin Tomlinson MP, the Minister for Disabled People and Nick Pontefract, Head of Sports at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport as part of the inquiry into the issue of accessibility at sports stadia.

Many sports fans with disabilities still find that facilities at sports stadia are inadequate. During the session, Julie asked whether the Minister felt that it was acceptable that Premier League clubs, some of whom are paying players over £100,000 per week, were unwilling to commit to a timescale of less than two years to invest and upgrade their grounds so that they could be suitable for disabled fans.
