Motion text

That this House, supporting Her Majesty's Government's message that it will not tolerate violence against women, opposes Mike Tyson being granted a visa to enter the UK for a second boxing match; recalls that the Home Secretary permitted his previous visit because fans had already bought tickets and businesses in Manchester stood to lose if the boxing match were cancelled, circumstances which do not apply now; notes that many honourable Members and Right honourable Members have constituents whose relatives, having committed no crime of any kind, have been refused entry to the UK even to attend family funerals or to visit the seriously ill; and insists that Mike Tyson should not be granted a visa to enter the UK as the only reason for seeking to do so is that he and others can make some easy money.
