Olympic Games: Greater London

Volume 458: debated on Monday 19 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will break down the funding allocated to (a) English Institute of Sport (EIS) services, (b) sports science and (c) sports medicine services for each Summer Olympic sport within their World Class Reference Pathway Funding through to 2009 as referred to in the answer of 29 June 2006, Official Report, columns 569-70W, on the Olympics. (127949)

As part of the investment model, UK Sport is providing lottery funding of £10.5 million to the EIS for this and for each of the next two financial years. In addition, UK Sport has confirmed to Summer Olympic sports a guideline figure to be spent on sports science and sports medicine (SS/SM) services. The guideline figure provided to each sport is shown in the following table. It is up to the individual sport in conjunction with UK Sport to agree the exact amount invested into SS/SM services. It is important to recognise that sports can purchase additional SS/SM services at any time and therefore there is no cut-off point when a sport will stop purchasing extra support.

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans she has for the use of the shooting ranges' site at Woolwich following the 2012 London Olympics; and if she will make a statement. (128140)

The Olympic Delivery Authority, the body responsible for constructing Games facilities, and the London 2012 Organising Committee venues team, are looking carefully at the post Games use of all proposed facilities being developed for the shooting competitions at Woolwich.

The Government are working hard with our other London 2012 stakeholders to ensure a lasting legacy for all Olympic and Paralympic sports, including shooting, in terms of facilities, increased exposure and increased participation, for London and the UK as a whole.
