Sittings of the House (1 May) — Sunday Trading (London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games) Bill [Lords] — 30 Apr 2012 at 21:47
Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted with the majority (Aye).
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
I will start by setting out the context of the Bill. The opportunity to host the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic games is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime national event, and we have to make the most of the opportunities that hosting them will bring. The games will attract significant numbers of visitors from around the world to the UK, and consequently the economic benefits to the UK are expected to be considerable. By way of contrast, the Australian 2000 games attracted 1.6 million additional visitors, and Beijing 4.4 million. We have had an independent estimate that about 6 million additional visits will be made to the UK as a consequence of the games.
Ayes 273, Noes 131.
