Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

5. To ask the Minister for the Olympics what recent discussions she has had on the budget for the Olympic Games; and if she will make a statement. (172193)

The Ministerial Funders Group met on 26 November and agreed funding for the Olympic Delivery Authority within the £9.325 billion provision I announced in March.

Since then I have had discussions with:

the Chair of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee;

the Chair of the Public Accounts Committee;

the Conservative and Liberal Democrat Culture spokesmen and

the president of the International Olympic Committee.

This morning, I presented a written statement to the House to update hon. Members on the budget for 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games.
