Spain: Football

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 4 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with his Spanish counterpart on the violence at the Bolton Wanderers versus Atletico Madrid football match in Madrid on 21 February 2008. (190041)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has not held discussions with his Spanish counterpart on this issue. The Home Office has requested police and other reports on the incident. Bolton Wanderers and the Football Association are also pursuing this matter with UEFA.
