SAFE STANDING UPDATE

As previously reported, a Parliamentary debate took place on Monday 25th June in relation to Safe Standing. It turned out to be a well-attended, interesting debate with those in attendance by and large demonstrating that they were up to speed on all of the relevant issues including one of our own, Gateshead MP and NUFC fan Ian Mearns who spoke up in favour of Safe Standing. Momentum is gathering and we await further developments.
