CONTROVERSIAL MP George Galloway could soon be allowed into Canada if he wins an appeal against his ban from entering the country.

The Federal Court of Canada is set to reconsider its ban which barred the Bethnal Green and Bow MP from visiting Canada on a speaking tour.

The Respect MP was banned because he was made a personal donation to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza. Canada lists Hamas, which runs the government in Gaza, as a terrorist organisation.

The hearing is set to be heard in January next year.

Canada is the only country which has banned Mr Galloway from visiting.
