HC Deb 13 May 2002 vol 385 c409W
12. Chris Grayling

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when a decision will be made regarding the national stadium project. [53973]

Tessa Jowell

As I explained to the House in my statement on 7 May I have agreed to the Football Association's request to delay the Government's final decision on support for the national stadium until the current commercial negotiations between the FA and their bankers are concluded. Those discussions continue to make good progress.
