TRAVEL BAN ON STEPHEN YAXLEY-LENNON

EDM (Early Day Motion) 1778: tabled on 30 October 2018

Tabled in the 2017-19 session.

This motion has been signed by 52 Members. It has not yet had any amendments submitted.

Motion text

That this House notes that an invitation has been issued to Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, also known as Tommy Robinson, to speak at events in Washington DC on 14 November 2018; further notes that these invitations have been issued by anti-Muslim think tanks the Middle East Forum and the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and by seven Republican Party members of Congress; notes that Yaxley-Lennon is believed to be currently subject to a banning order barring him from the US because of criminal convictions for acts of violence, and for entering the US illegally in 2012; believes that if the US Administration bows to pressure from right wing groups and figures allied with the Trump administration and overturns Yaxley-Lennon's ban and allow him into the US, the media exposure and the money he could raise on the trip will have a detrimental impact on community relations in the UK; and calls on the Government to urgently make representations to the US Administration urging it to maintain the banning order.
