Harry Cohen: To ask the Minister for the Olympics what provision has been made to respond to demand for facilities to practise faith and prayer arising from the number of people visiting London for the 2012 Olympics. 
Tessa Jowell: We aspire for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to be inclusive to all. The wide diversity of London was one of the bid's greatest strengths and will no doubt help us achieve this aspiration.
Every organisation involved in the games has considered faith as part of their approach to diversity and inclusion. The Olympic Delivery Authority, the public body responsible for developing and building the venues and infrastructure for the games, has already produced inclusive design standards to guide construction contractors and sub-contractors. The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games has set up a faith reference group for LOCOG to engage with all faith communities to build awareness and advise how best to cater for athletes, spectators, media and other client groups attending the games-including signposting visitors to existing facilities.

Andrew Rosindell: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what recent discussions he has had with his European counterparts on the maintenance of world heritage sites in EU member states. 
Paul Clark: Callers to the Air Transport Users' Council (AUC) advice line receive an immediate reply. Written correspondence is acknowledged within two days and a substantive reply is sent within five weeks.
Mr. Lancaster: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what representations he has received on the effects on first person view flying of proposed air navigation order articles; and if he will hold discussions with the First Person View Flying Association on that matter. 
Paul Clark: To date, we have received 14 representations about the effect of the proposed amendments to the Air Navigation Order on first person vision model flying. The British First Person View Model Flying Association has not requested a meeting on this subject. However, the Civil Aviation Authority and my officials would be pleased to meet them to discuss this issue.
"it was agreed that the term aerotoxic syndrome was unhelpful because the health problems described were variable between subjects."
The Department for Transport and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) keep abreast of news on aviation health. We have commissioned research by Cranfield university into cabin air quality aimed at filling a gap in knowledge.
Mr. Heald: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what steps he plans to take to reduce the length of crossing times for the Dartford Crossing; and when he expects such steps to take effect. 
In the short term the Highways Agency are in the process of implementing a package of measures, including the introduction of average speed cameras and further traffic management technology, to reduce the number of incidents at the Crossing, which will improve journey times.
Additionally, in April 2009, the Department published its initial analysis of the current and possible future capacity constraints at the Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing. On the basis of the findings and conclusions of the analysis, we announced further work to investigate what can be done in the short to medium term to improve the level of service provided by the existing Crossing.
The study recommended further work on two possible measures, recognising that each had the potential to generate some small benefits by increasing throughput while avoiding impacts on safety. This work is being taken forward and is expected to take 12 to 18 months to complete.
