The London Assembly will tomorrow question the Chair and Chief Executive of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, Lord Coe and Paul Deighton.
Questions on the agenda are:
- Are you satisfied that only 36% of tickets to the men’s 100m final will be going to the public?
- Why do you refuse to publish a detailed breakdown of how many tickets have been sold, and at what price, for each event for both the Olympic and the Paralympic Games?
- Are you satisfied that the predictions made in your business plan, particularly in relation to the popularity of the Games and the events leading up to Games-time, stack up?
- Is it possible to deliver the London 2012 Food Vision for sustainable and ethical food, given the interests of powerful corporate sponsors from the catering, and food and drink industries?
The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 7 March from 10am in the Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).
Media and members of the public are invited to attend. The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
