Prayers — Grocery Market Ombudsman Bill — 5 Mar 2010 at 13:00

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

I am delighted to move the Second Reading of this Bill, the principle of which has gathered support from those in all parts of the House since it was introduced in December. It is appropriate that I put on the record my sincere thanks to the Grocery Market Action Group, which consists of a powerful alliance of organisations, including the Association of Convenience Stores, the Rural Shops Alliance, the Independent Fruit Growers Association, the British Brands Group, the National Farmers Union, ActionAid UK, Traidcraft and Banana Link. Many of those organisations have lobbied Members to attend today's debate, and they are very supportive of Members' support for the Bill.

Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

The House divided: Ayes 44, Noes 0.
