Motion text

That this House notes media reports of talks between the International Olympic Committee and Procter and Gamble regarding sponsorship of the London 2012 Olympics; recognises that Procter and Gamble continue to use animals in painful and lethal toxicity tests for the sake of cosmetics and cleaning brands such as Herbal Essences, Olay, Pantene, Head and Shoulders, Fairy and Ariel; further notes that the UK, the host country for the 2012 Games, banned such animal testing for cosmetics on the grounds of unnecessary cruelty back in 1998 and plans to ban animal testing of cleaning products; considers that testing cosmetics on animals also puts Procter and Gamble in opposition to the fundamental principles of Olympism to uphold universal fundamental ethical principles and promote a peaceful society; therefore calls on the Government to recognise that Procter and Gamble's unethical animal testing is in conflict with the values of the United Kingdom and the Olympic movement; and asks the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to express its opposition to Procter and Gamble's proposed sponsorship of London 2012 and work to prevent any such sponsorship deal.
