To ask the Minister for the Olympics what plans there are to accommodate non-accredited international media for the London 2012 Olympic Games; and if she will make a statement. (268800)

[holding answer 20 April 2009]: Visit London has recently completed an initial scoping exercise to determine the necessary size, scope and cost of a non-accredited media centre in London. They have also begun working with their tourism partners on an audit of potential studio spaces, attractions and stand-up points with iconic views for broadcasters outside of the Olympic Park. Pre-registration for the media centre is likely to be announced in 2010, once funding and a detailed budget have been agreed.
