Motion text

That this House congratulates the Football Association for its Kick It Out campaign against racism in football; registers with profound disapproval, however, that the FA is prepared to participate in the European Under-21 football tournament to be played in Israel in June 2013, even though Israel is geographically not in Europe and isa country which has policies of racial apartheid against Palestinians; and therefore calls on the Government to support the Red Card Israeli Apartheid campaign which calls for this European football tournament to be played in Europe.
