Olympic Games 2012: Gun Sports

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Minister for the Olympics if she will place in the Library the further report on the Olympic shooting venue commissioned by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games for submission to the International Olympic Committee; what estimate the ODA have made of the merits of holding the Olympic shooting events at (a) Bisley, (b) Barking, (c) Woolwich and (d) elsewhere; and what the cost to the public purse of the report was. (267704)

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) undertook detailed feasibility work on the location of the London 2012 shooting venue and presented their findings to the Olympic Board at its meeting on 19 March.

For continuing reasons of commercial sensitivity and so as not to prejudice the ODA’s and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games’ discussions and negotiations on contracts they have not awarded for temporary venues, I am unable to place a copy of the ODA’s detailed feasibility work in the Library of the House at this time.

The cost of the feasibility work was undertaken by ODA staff as part of their core business activity.
