Olympic Games 2012: Young People

Volume 473: debated on Monday 17 March 2008

To ask the Minister for the Olympics whether the London Youth Games will be able to use the Olympic facilities during their testing phase; and what provision has been made for the London Youth Games in the Olympics legacy. (194514)

[holding answer 14 March 2008]: LOCOG has not yet considered which events will be staged at the Olympic Park for the programme of test events leading up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games.

The Olympic Stakeholders are committed to long-term elite and community use for the Olympic Park facilities after the 2012 games. I understand the London Development Agency, as the interim client for the site, are considering how events such as the London Youth Games can be factored into future legacy plans.
