Lords to probe Olympics regeneration benefits
The House of Lords is to investigate the regeneration impact of the £9.3 billion London 2012 Olympic Games
The upper chamber has launched a select committee to consider progress made so far in delivering the games’ promised legacy benefits.
Committee chair Jonathan Harris said: ‘As the first anniversary of the Games fast approaches, this Committee will take stock of where we are on delivering the vision of legacy set out in our bid and examine the issues around it. We would encourage anyone who has an interest to send us their evidence and contribute to the debate.’
The First evidence session on Wednesday (5 June) will see the Cabinet Office’s Emma Boggis, David Brooker from DCMS and mayoral advisor Neale Coleman quizzed.
The deadline for written evidence (to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org) is Wednesday 31 July.
