Football Association Information Disclosure
Dear House of Commons,
We request that you, as the lawmakers of this country, pass a law that makes it mandatory for the Football Association and all its relevant parties, affiliates and subsidiaries in the english national football structure to publish the complete and unamended referee match reports and assessor reports for every single professional football match taking place in the league, as we feel that it is a football fan's right to know why decisions are made in a game that we invest in to see our sides suffer the unpredictable and unreasoned decision-making from referees, who we believe should be held accountable for every mistake they make and we feel we should be able to view the action taken by the FA and what the assessors thing of it. We believe the only way this action can be achieved is by approaching the government directly.
Thank you for your email. The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) entitles individuals to request access to recorded information that is held by a public authority, we are therefore not able to respond to you within the terms of the Act.
However, you may find the following information useful:
You may consider contacting your local Member of Parliament, contact details are available here: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-o... .
You may also consider contacting the House of Commons Information Office for any further assistance, contact details are available at: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-o....
I am sorry that I was not able to help you any further.
