Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

8. To ask the Minister for the Olympics what assessment she has made of the effects of the 2012 London Olympic Games on Nottingham. (204437)

Nottingham stands to gain from the wide range of opportunities created by the 2012 Games, in the same way as other towns, cities and regions across the UK. Over the next four years I want to see all parts of the UK taking advantage of the sporting, cultural, economic and other opportunities that will be available.

I understand that the ODA has already awarded 27 contracts to companies registered in the East Midlands and 26 facilities from the region are included in the official pre-Games Training Camp Guide.
