Palestinians: Entry Clearances

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will review the visa applications of the Palestine under-19 football squad. (157312)

On 12 September, as the Minister responsible for entry clearance I requested UKvisas to review the refusal of the visa applications submitted by the Palestine National Youth Football Team. I have considered the outcome of this review and am satisfied that the decision was correct and entirely in accordance with the Immigration Rules.
