To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their assessment of the proposition by the Rapporteur of the European Parliament's Culture, Sport and Education Committee that the European Union Flag should be flown at big sporting occasions and that competitors should display the European Union logo on their clothing; and whether such a policy would be decided by qualified majority voting or unanimously.

We believe that decisions on which flags and logos are worn or displayed at big sporting occasions are for individual competing teams and event organisers to make, not the European Union.
