5 Conclusion |
16. This Committee looks for open and constructive
engagement on the subjects it considers, but feels that on this
occasion it has not had that. However, we do not wish to divert
the delivery bodies' attention from the final stages of the preparations
for the Games. We have made clear our views.
17. We have previously acknowledged the exemplary
work of the Olympic Delivery Authority on the Olympic Park and
venues. There have been serious difficulties with planning and
delivering venue security, but the overall picture on how the
preparations have gone, and the effectiveness of the accountability
arrangements in place for the costs and legacy benefits, will
be clearer after the Games. Meanwhile, we wish every success
to the Department and the many other organisations involved in
delivering the Games.
