Defence Estates: Olympic Games 2012

Volume 488: debated on Monday 2 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will place in the Library a copy of the letter to him from General Sir Richard Dannatt on the venue for shooting events at the London 2012 Olympics. (242082)

[holding answer 10 December 2008]: I have placed a copy of the note on Bisley that Gen Sir Richard Dannatt passed to my predecessor in September 2008 in the Library of the House.

We remain committed to working with the London Organising Committee of the Olympic games to enable the shooting events at the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics to take place at the Royal Artillery Barracks, subject to there being minimal disruption to army personnel, their families, and to the operations of the Barracks.
