Mr. Gareth R. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what action she will take to promote a London bid to host the Olympic Games. [782]

Mr. Caborn

The decision on whether or not to launch a UK bid to host the Olympic Games is a matter for the British Olympic Association. The Government will take a view on what steps they might take to promote any bid in the event the BOA decides to make a bid.
