Amend London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006

Remove the offence of using words such as "London"; "Olympics" etc etc as stated in the existing act by companies trying to exist in London of who use the word "olympics"

 

This appears to have been a "sop" by the previous administration to curry favour with the IOC, and win the right to host the games.  The current World Cup and its similar restrictions is a case in point
