Football Association Information Disclosure

Benjamin made this Freedom of Information request to House of Commons

House of Commons did not have the information requested.

From: Benjamin

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.

Yours faithfully,
