Legacy Objectives

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

4. To ask the Minister for the Olympics what the legacy objectives are for the Olympic Games in Southend and the UK. (172192)

We are committed to ensuring that everyone in the UK can be part of the 2012 games—through cultural events across the country, more opportunities to take part in sport and be physically active, and a wealth of volunteering, jobs and skills training initiatives. The five legacy promises that I published in June encapsulate these objectives, and I will be publishing an action plan in the new year making clear how these promises will be delivered. These aims apply to every nation and region of the UK, including Southend.
