Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what estimate she has made of the effects on costs of security for the 2012 Olympics of the events in London on 7 July; and if she will make a statement.

Mrs. Dorries: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what representations she has received regarding the opportunities for Bedfordshire to play a role in the 2012 London Olympic games; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Caborn: Bedfordshire is part of the East of England Working Group for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. Councillor Lynne Faulkner represents Bedfordshire on that regional working group supporting the wider work the 2012 Nations and Regions Group are undertaking to ensure the whole country is involved in, and benefits from, the games in 2012.
Mike Penning: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what measures are planned to provide benefits from the 2012 Olympics for (a) hoteliers, (b) businesses and (c) residents of areas outside East London, with particular reference to Hemel Hempstead constituency. 
Mr. Caborn: We expect there to be significant social, sporting and economic benefits for the whole of the UK as a result of the Olympic and Paralympic games in 2012. There will be billions of pounds worth of contracts on offer to UK companies, and the games provides a unique opportunity to showcase the best of UK business on a global stage. The London games will also result in increased numbers of visitors to the UK in 2012 and offers the opportunity to further raise the profile of the UK as a tourist destination with resulting benefits for the UK hotel trade.
Tessa Jowell: London's bid underwent rigorous assessment by the International Olympic Committee, Treasury and the Office of Government Commerce. The Government remain committed to ensuring the 2012 games are delivered on time and on budget.
In the unlikely event of an overspend occurring in staging the Olympic and Paralympics games the responsibility will be discharged through an appropriate sharing arrangement to be agreed between Government, the Mayor of London and the National Lottery. The details of the funding arrangements are set out in Command Paper CM5867 laid before the House in June 2003.
