Jesse Norman, MP for Hereford, has told BBC Hereford and Worcester that yesterday's news about the Bulls being relegated from the Conference was an absolute disaster for the club.
"There has been a very sorry catalogue of failure to abide by undertakings given to the Conference," said Norman
"The Conference have repeatedly extended the deadline to the new owners and they haven't come up with the money.
"We need information, we need to know who owns the club and who has got a stake in it.
"We need strong assurances from the Council, they have said they haven't been approached to sell the ground, that's vital.
"We have to protect the ground.
"There has to be a clear pathway now, if the club has to go into administration that should be made absolutely clear. Then from that we should be able to reconstruct the club as a supporters led institution with HUST and other organisation.
"I think the Council is aware of the importance of the football club to the city and the ground.
"There have historically been leases which the club has taken and those leases can theroetically be used by the club and by its owners to work on the delevopment of the site provided there is football played there and the money goes back into the ground.
"We don't have a clear statement of intent yet from the Council and I have pressed them to make such a statement so that it's clear from their side what the position is.
"Then from the new owners we need to understand precisely what their intentions are and how they plan to deal with the back wages and the existing money owed and also how they are going to handle any possible administration proceedings."
