Jo Stevens responds to report into abuse in football

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, responding to a report into abuse in football, said:

“The report lays bare the decades-long abuse in football which many knew about but too often got brushed under the carpet.

“The ‘institutional failings’ in keeping players and others safe have ruined lives. Now these recommendations must be put in place as soon as possible to protect young people who just want to play our national game.”
