To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement about his role as chair of the Ministerial Committee on the Commonwealth Games. [160728]

My right hon. Friend the Minister of State, Cabinet Office explained, in evidence to the Culture, Media and Sport Committee on 20 March, that Manchester city council, with the Government, had arranged a review of the finances and organisation of the Commonwealth Games in Manchester next year as the build-up to the Games moves from the planning to the implementation phase.

Discussions continue.
