Although I have had no recent discussions with Northern Ireland Ministers on this matter, I understand that the hon. Member for East Londonderry, the Northern Ireland Minister for Culture, Arts and Leisure has warmly congratulated all the athletes from Northern Ireland who participated in the 2008 Olympic and Paralympic games in Beijing, and held a reception for all the athletes on 6 October in Parliament buildings.
