Increase funding for schools

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 4 Mar 2019 View Ian Mearns's petition debate contributions
19 May 2019
closed 1 year, 9 months ago

Safe Standing offers a much safer alternative to fans who wish to stand, rather than sit at football matches. After the highly successful introduction to rail seating at Celtic Park, as well as numerous Bundesliga clubs, many football fans feel that laws preventing standing areas should be relaxed.
