To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth on 28 March (HL Deb, col 830), what steps they have taken to find a mediator to bring the various parties together to seek a solution to the present impasse concerning Dulwich Hamlet Football Club.
Answer (Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth)
Southwark Council has asked its Director of Regeneration to start negotiations with a view to purchasing the site. During a debate on this issue in Parliament on 16 March the Sports Minister confirmed that should the negotiations fail, she will look to find and appoint an independent mediator who can facilitate the constructive talks needed between all parties and, in the process, help to secure a future for this well-supported community club for many years to come.
