Olympic Games 2012

Volume 705: debated on Tuesday 25 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they favour the 2012 Olympic shooting events being held at the Royal Artillery Barracks at Woolwich. [HL6508]

The Royal Artillery Barracks at Woolwich was selected as the shooting venue for the London 2012 Games following the International Olympic Committee’s review of the Bid Committee’s applicant file. In August this year, KPMG was commissioned to test and challenge the plans for a number of temporary venues, including Woolwich, to ensure that they continue to represent the best value for money. This work on the shooting venue is ongoing and final decisions are yet to be made by the Olympic Board.
