28. Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what role his Department will play in the development of the new Wembley stadium and related infrastructure. [66787]

Mr. Banks

I am keeping a very close eye on progress with the development of the new National Stadium, although my Department has no direct role in funding or constructing the stadium and relating infrastructure. The project is central to our plans to bring the major international sporting events to this country.
