Olympic Games 2012: Temporary Venues

Volume 712: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will disclose to individual members of the House of Lords, or place in the Library of the House, the unedited KPMG and CLM reports and other associated papers used to decide temporary and other venues for the 2012 Olympic Games, together with details of associated construction and costings and legacy benefits. [HL4788]

A redacted summary version of the KPMG report that informed the Olympic Board's decision was published and placed in the House Library. Because of the continuing commercial sensitivity of information contained within the report, I am unable to publish a full copy at this time.

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games and the Olympic Delivery Authority have also held several briefing sessions with a number of MPs and Peers and are happy to undertake further meetings to explain the rationale behind the Olympic Board's decision as are the British Olympic Association and British Shooting. British Shooting has accepted that Bisley is not a viable option for the 2012 events and will work with London 2012 on legacy for the sport.
