I have received representations from hon. Members, the National Rifle Association, Southern Counties Shooting Ltd, various members of shooting groups and other members of the public requesting the shooting events for the 2012 Olympic games and Paralympic games be staged at Bisley.
KPMG were commissioned by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) last year to test and challenge the plans for a number of 2012 temporary venues, including shooting, to ensure they remain viable venues for competition in 2012 as well as offering the best possible value for money. In December the Olympic Board published the findings of the KPMG report. The Olympic Board agreed at the time of publication that further work to assess the venue for shooting would be carried out by the ODA and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic games and Paralympic games (LOCOG) in the new year. This work is ongoing, and includes an evaluation of Bisley which will be considered by the Olympic Board.
