Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps her Department plans to take to ensure that Colchester shares in the (a) economic, (b) social and (c) sporting benefits arising from the 2012 Olympic games. 
Mr. Caborn: The Government are committed to ensuring that people across the UK, including Colchester can benefit from, and participate in, the 2012 Olympic games and Paralympic games. We are working closely with the London Organising Committee of the Olympic games and Paralympic games (LOCOG) and the Nations and Regions Group (NRG), chaired by Charles Allen, which brings together representatives from every nation and region. Each nation and region is finalising its own plan to maximise the impact of the games in their area, as well as the wider opportunities to deliver a sustainable legacy from the games. The East of England released its regional plan on 28 March 2007. In developing the plan, consultation has taken place over the last two years. It can be found on the East of England Regional Development Agency website:
Further detailed information regarding the regions plan can be provided by the relevant NRG Coordinator, Katie Huane (East of England Development Agency, The Business Centre, Station Road, Histon, Cambridge, CB4 9LQ).
In addition, Broxbourne in Hertfordshire will host the 2012 canoeing and kayaking and Weald country park near Brentwood in Essex will also host the Olympic mountain biking competitions. Together these events will add significant strength to the regions potential to benefit from the games.
