06 January 2010

Members of the House of Lords with experience in and expertise of sport and planning for the 2012 Olympics, including a former Olympic athlete, discussed the preparations for the hosting of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London in a short debate on 5 January.

The wide-ranging discussion included an update on plans and progress towards construction of the Olympic park and venues, UK businesses with 2012 contracts, sponsorship targets and the Cultural Olympiad.

Questions for short debate - discussions usually lasting from 60 to 90 minutes - can be tabled by any Member of the Lords to ask the Government a question on a topic of interest. A spokesperson replies to the question on behalf of the Government.
