Preparation for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games - Public Accounts Committee Contents

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.
