icon moneyman18 October ~ MP David Crausby has expressed his disappointment following the Government’s response to his petition, which calls for the Premier League to give 7.5 per cent of its broadcasting rights income to developing community facilities. The petition, which has received 15,000 signatures so far, was relaunched in July. Crausby said: “One year on from my first petition the Government have shown that they aren’t even considering the issues that have been raised despite the concerns of thousands of people all across the country.” More information about the campaign can be found here, and you can sign the petition here.
