Mike has joined a number of MPs by signing a Parliamentary Motion calling for the International Olympic Committee to observe a minutes silence in memory of the victims of the Munich Olympics massacre.

Early Day Motion 100 highlights that the 2012 Olympic Games is the 40th anniversary of the horrific murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Commenting, Mike said: I think that minutes silence on the 40th anniversary of this terrible event would be a fitting tribute. While security at the London Olympics is subject to a great deal of public debate, it is important to remember that such a high profile event is inevitably a terrorist target, which is why tight security measures are so necessary.
