Olympic contracts must be spread across regions – Foster

Commenting on the news that organisers of the 2012 Olympics are putting £700m of contracts out to tender, Liberal Democrat Shadow Sport Secretary, Don Foster said:

“Increasing opportunities for businesses from across the UK is a key part of the Government’s Olympic Legacy plan.

“The information released today shows that so far a disproportionate number of contracts have been awarded to businesses based in London and the South East.

“It is great that so many contracts are still up for grabs but officials need to make sure that more is done so that all areas of the country benefit.”
