Police: Olympic Games 2012

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when police forces will receive notification from the Olympic Delivery Authority of their funding entitlement for policing the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. (256129)

Work is continuing to finalise the strategy and plans for the security of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Home Office has provided funding to police forces in 2007-08 and 2008-09 to enable them to plan and prepare for the Games. It will continue to make available funding as necessary. Any decisions will need to take account of the operational needs of the police and other security agencies, affordability within the total funding envelope and the need to secure value for money.
