To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport for what reasons the flags of British Overseas Territories were not displayed in Parliament Square and Horse Guards Parade during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the Trooping of the Colour.

We had hoped to be able to fly the flags of the Overseas Territories (OT) at this summer's ceremonial events, but the first manufacturers of the bespoke ceremonial flagpoles and flags delivered products which were unusable, or which required specialist repair before they could be used. The repairs and replacements are currently being undertaken and we expect to be able to fly the OT flags at future ceremonial events.
