Olympic Games 2012: Construction

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Minister for the Olympics pursuant to the answer of 15 January 2008, Official Report, column 879W on Olympic Games 2012: construction, what RAG rating has been applied to the (a) budgetary and (b) timescale elements of the Olympics construction programme in each of the last six months. (250377)

[holding answer 22 January 2009]: It is not our policy to release the RAG ratings contained in confidential reports to the Olympic Board as, in isolation, they could be misinterpreted. When reporting to the Olympic Board, RAG ratings reflect the risks that exist, as well as progress to date, and these have recently focused primarily on financial challenges as a consequence of the current economic situation, as reflected in my statement of 22 January. Construction works over the last six months have continued to be delivered within the budget and on programme.
