Secretary of State for the Home Department, Theresa May responded to an urgent question asked by Keith Vaz, Labour MP for Leicester East and Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee in the House of Commons on 12 July 2012 on the Olympics security situation.
Watch and read the urgent question and the views expressed by MPs on Parliament TV and in Commons Hansard. Also find more information on Sport and the Olympics in the Topics section of the Parliament website.
Urgent questions are asked at the end of Question Time. If something has happened, normally a matter of public importance, which an MP believes requires an immediate answer from a government minister, they may apply to the Speaker to ask an urgent question.
If the Speaker agrees, the question will be asked at the end of Question Time.
