To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what bids he has made for Northern Ireland to host events during the 2012 Olympic games. (103801)

As set out in London 2012's Candidate File, if Northern Ireland develops its planned multi-sport stadium, this venue will be considered as a location for preliminary rounds of the Olympic football competition. Northern Ireland will also seek to host pre-games training and acclimatisation camps. In addition, it is intended that events which are part of the cultural Olympiad including the torch relay will take place in Northern Ireland.
