Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Minister for the Olympics what proportion of invoices from suppliers the Government Olympic Executive paid within 10 days of receipt in November and December 2009. (311202)

The proportion of invoices paid within 10 days of receipt by the Government Olympic Executive (GOE) was 98.46 per cent. in November 2009 and 94.55 per cent. in December 2009.

As GOE reports to me as Minister for the Olympics through the permanent secretary to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), information on invoices paid by GOE will be included within the overall DCMS figure which will be provided by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at DCMS.
