The Harrington Report
This report was made to the then Minister of Sport in 1968, and concluded:
"The solution of the problems of hooliganism in the football stadium is ultimately the responsibility of individual clubs who must deal with it in the light of local circumstances. While a few clubs are exemplary in their attitude to the problem, others are laissez-faire and need persuasion to take a more active role in trying to control hooliganism in their own ground. This laissez-faire attitude does not help the police in their attempts to deal with the matter."
This particular report is summarised on pages 10 and 11 of the Popplewell Report.
