asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the commitment by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee on 21 November 2006 that investment would be made in the English regions as a result of the 2012 London Olympics, whether they will provide budgets showing the benefit for each region that they expect to benefit. [HL2523]

The Secretary of State's statement to the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee on 21 November 2006 that investment will be made by the regions as a result of the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games referred to the plan that each region is currently pulling together to prioritise how they intend to maximise the benefits of the 2012 Games for their businesses and communities and to ensure that the Games deliver a lasting social, environmental, economic and health legacy.

A nations and regions group, chaired by Charles Allen, brings together representatives from every region and nation to drive forward work in this area.
