To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the projected completion date is for the Redgrave-Pinsent lake at Caversham; and when the athletes will be able to use the training water at the lake. [29820]

Mr. Caborn

The 2,200 metre rowing course at Caversham is expected to be completed in time for Amateur Rowing Association (ARA) training in autumn 2003.

Sport England has offered the ARA the opportunity to train on approximately 1,000 metres of the lake in the winter 2002, during construction.
