Council Question Time

  Gay Mitchell (PPE-DE). – Given that xenophobia and racism is often evident at sporting events, would the President-in-Office consider, as part of the plan, using sport as a way to fight xenophobia? From acorns grow oak trees.

In my own constituency, Crumlin United Football Club – a club for young people, where Robbie Keane came from – each year holds a sports festival weekend where people not only play sport but also have cultural exchanges. Would the President-in-Office consider having a weekend across the European Union where similar sporting and cultural exchanges take place, so that we use sport to fight xenophobia?
