I met with Shona Robinson, Minister for Public Health in Scotland to discuss London 2012 and the legacy opportunities for Scotland.

UK nations and regions are realising the opportunities and benefits from the sporting, commercial, and cultural programmes offered by the 2012 Games. Government officials, and the Nations and Regions Group (NRG), which includes representation from each of the nations and English regions, are in regular contact with officials in Scotland.

In addition, the Minister for Health and Sport, Scottish Executive, is a member of the Sporting Legacy Board which is chaired by the Minister for Sport in DCMS, and brings together sports leaders from across the UK.
