§ Lord Jopling
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Written Answer by the Lord McIntosh of Haringey on 3 February (WA 62), whether, for the avoidance of misunderstanding, they will draw to the attention of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that differing criteria based on local guidelines were used in table 12.14, page 43, volume 3 of the London bid for the 2012 Olympic Games; and whether they will give an assurance that all debates and Questions together with Answers reported in Hansard referring to the 2012 Olympic Games will be forwarded as a routine form of information to the IOC. [HL1180]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Culture, Media and Sport (Lord McIntosh of Haringey)
A commission from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) visited London between 16 and 19 February to evaluate London's bid for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. During the visit the bid team discussed the detailed content of our candidate file, including security issues, with the evaluation commission. We will provide the IOC with whatever information it requests to help it make a full assessment of London's bid.
