China And The Olympic Games

EDM number 1276 in 2007-08, proposed by Frank Field on 31/03/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Asia, International politics and government and Sports.

That this House, remembering that those nations attending the 1936 Olympic Games in Nazi Germany believed that by participating in the Games the Hitler regime would be civilised, calls upon the Government and individual competitors in the 2008 Olympics in China to begin thinking how they will prevent a 1936 replay with a totalitarian state again using the Games for their own propaganda purposes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
