Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence

Annex 4

Letter, 14 December 2000, from the then Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to the Chief Executive of the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority


  I gather that the Lee Valley Park Authority is meeting today to discuss the Lee Valley Stadium. I just wanted to confirm the Government are determined to put in place the best possible facilities for the 2005 World Championships and that we believe that the Lee Valley Stadium offers the best potential to bring this about.

  I appreciate that there is still a lot more work to be done on this project but I hope that the final feasibility work can be got underway quickly. We will continue to work with you, UK Athletics and Sport England to deliver the best possible solution for the 2005 World Championships.
