East Midlands

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

22. To ask the Minister for the Olympics what support is available for local authorities in the east midlands to develop their strategies and policies for London 2012. (151116)

Local authorities have a key role to play in ensuring we maximise the legacy of hosting the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in 2012.

In the east midlands, as in other regions, local authorities are represented on the regional groups for 2012 and supported by the regional coordinator. Additionally, the Local Government Association is supporting local authorities across England to ensure they realise the opportunities that the 2012 Games bring.

All this work is being driven forward nationally by the London 2012 Nations and Regions group, chaired by Charles Allen.
