Olympic Games 2012: Shooting

Volume 692: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the proposal by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games to build shooting ranges at the Royal Artillery Barracks at Woolwich at an estimated cost of £18 million, with a further cost of £8 million to demolish the construction after the Games, satisfies value for money and lasting legacy criteria. [HL3901]

In terms of lasting legacy for shooting, it is intended that the indoor shooting range at the Royal Artillery Barracks will be deconstructed after the Games for reuse elsewhere in the UK.

Decisions on the future use and location of all of the relocatable venues will be made on a needs basis, in close consultation with the home country sports councils and UK Sport.
