We are committed to working with the organising company and the Scottish Executive to ensure a successful Commonwealth games in 2014. The UK Government have already provided a number of guarantees to the bid team including agreement in principle to a ban on unauthorised ticket resale for the games to extend to England and Wales.

The Secretary of State has also proposed a regular quadripartite meeting between representatives of the UK Government and the bid partners with a view to determining how the UK Government can offer support to the Glasgow games in reserved policy areas included in the bid document.
