The McElhone Report

In October, 1976, the then Secretary of State for Scotland asked Mr Frank McElhone, MP, to chair a Working Group on Football Crowd Behaviour:


"to consider the problems caused by some Scottish football supporters and to make recommendations to the Scottish Football Association and other organisations concerned".


This particular report (Report of the Working Group on Football Crowd Behaviour, Scottish Education Department/HMSO, 1977) is summarised on pages 14 and 15 of the Popplewell Report.
