UK School Games

Volume 449: debated on Tuesday 25 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (1) what part volunteers will play in the running of the 2006 UK School Games in Glasgow; (86726)

(2) if she will list the applicants who submitted tenders to run the UK School Games for 2007 to 2011; and if she will make a statement;

(3) whether the Youth Sports Trust has subcontracted any part of the running of the UK School Games for 2006; and if she will make a statement.

The selection of an operator to organise the UK School Games for 2006 and for 2007-11, and the subsequent grant of National Lottery money was a matter for the Millennium Commission. In my capacity as Chair of the Commission, I will write to the hon. Gentleman on this matter and arrange for copies of my reply to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
