I wish to commence my contribution this year by reiterating our collective congratulations to the Gibraltar Football Association on the success of their application to become the 54th member of UEFA. Gibraltar as a whole rejoiced spontaneously upon hearing the excellent news of attaining full membership of UEFA and, therefore, I sincerely hope that Gibraltarians in even bigger numbers than in the past will support our team in all future competitions.
I am glad to note that Government continues with the already existing GSD policy to assist all local sporting bodies to overcome any foreign Government’s politically inspired attempts to block our membership of international sporting bodies. This policy will certainly continue to receive the Opposition’s support and I wish other sporting associations, such as Rugby, Tennis and even the local branch of the I O C amongst others, all the very best in their continuing battles to obtain their respective international memberships which are rightfully and legally theirs.
