asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the statement by the Lord Rooker on 20 January (HL Deb, col. 902) that "the Dome may play a role if London is successful in the Olympic bid", whether any change has been made to the London 2012 bid team's application to the International Olympic Committee which states that the Dome will be used for gymnastics, basketball and handball if London wins the bid to host the Summer Olympics in 2012.

There has been no change to the proposed venues announced by the bidding company, London 2012 on 16 January, the day after the applicant questionnaire was submitted to the International Olympic Committee. This included the use of the Dome to stage the basketball and handball finals and gymnastics events, should the bid be successful.
