London Olympics Bill — New Clause 2 — Payments to London Organising Committee in Respect of Olympic Lotteries — 6 Dec 2005 at 18:30

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

I tabled the new clause with my hon. Friend the Member for East Devon (Mr. Swire) in the light of the omission in yesterday's pre-Budget report of any extra funding for elite athletes who are training for the Olympic games and of increasing concerns among sports outside the Olympic movement about the amount of funding available.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 143, Noes 307.
