Petition by Iain Jack  
Closed Petitions - Petition PE1371  
Petition by Iain Jack calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to intervene in the deadlock between the parties that govern Scottish football to compel them to: (1) form one truly representative governing body, fit to deliver competent and accountable decision making processes, and (2) carry out an investigation into the public funding provided to the SFA and its partners to determine whether the objectives of this funding have been met by them.

Written Questions for PE1371  

9 November 2010 :   The Committee agreed to write to the Scottish Government, Scottish Football Association, Scottish Premier League, Scottish Football League, PMP Consultants, UK Sport, Scottish Junior Football Association, Scottish Amateur Football Association, Scottish Womens Football and the Scottish Welfare Football Association seeking responses to points raised in the petition and during the discussion.  

25 January 2011 :   The Committee agreed to close the petition under Rule 15.7 of Standing Orders on the grounds that the second report by Henry McLeish to the SFA on the structure, leadership and governance of football has now been published. This contains a number of recommendations directly related to the issues raised in the petition, particularly in relation the governance and accountability issues. In addition, it is for the SFA and others to now reflect on those recommendations and to take actions to respond to those and, in the light of the McLeish report and the ongoing consideration of this matter, there is no need for further involvement of the Committee.
