Olympic Games: Greater London

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Minister for the Olympics what discussions she has had with the National Sports Academy at Lilleshall, Shropshire on the prospect of it being used as an Olympic regional training facility for the 2012 Olympics. (150728)

The first class sporting facilities at the National Sports Centre at Lilleshall will prove attractive to visiting teams. I have had no discussions with the National Sports Centre on this subject; however I look forward to visiting the centre shortly.

London 2012 has received over 700 applications from facilities across the UK that wish to feature in their Pre-Games Training Camp Guide, and is now carrying out an assessment and selection process.

Facilities will be notified of their inclusion in the Guide at the beginning of 2008—which will be distributed to National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) in August 2008.
