Motion text

That this House congratulates Graham Henry and all members of the Lions for their magnificent victory over Australia at the Gabba; looks forward to continued success in Melbourne; and points out that what can be achieved at world class level in Rugby Union by a British Isles team might just be emulated by a British Isles team in soccer.

BRITISH LIONS (Amendment 1)
leave out from 'Melbourne' to end and add 'but supports the continued arrangements for home nations' Rugby and Football Association national sides, and calls for all honourable Members to focus their efforts on supporting Scotland's bid for the 2008 European Football Championships rather than undermining that effort through calls for a British Isles Football Team.'.
