Visa Regimes For Football Supporters Travelling To The European Cup Final

EDM number 1488 in 2007-08, proposed by Keith Vaz on 06/05/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Russia and Sports.

That this House welcomes the proposal by the Russian Government not to require British fans to apply for visas when they visit Russia for the Champions League Final between Chelsea and Manchester United on 21st May 2008; notes that this is an excellent way to celebrate the positive spirit of competitive football; recognises that the British Government is unable to waive visa restrictions in return in respect of the UEFA Cup Final in Manchester between Zenit St Petersburg and Glasgow Rangers on 14th May; and calls on the Government to waive visa fees as a goodwill gesture.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
