The Olympics minister has revealed how many staff accompanied her to Vancouver for the Winter Games.

Jeremy Hunt:

To ask the Minister for the Olympics how many staff of the Government Olympic Executive attended the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver; and whether she attended. [318779]

Tessa Jowell: Four members of the Government Olympic Executive have attended the 2010 Winter Olympics. It is planned that a further four officials will attend the Paralympics. They are participating in the observer programmes which run throughout the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.

I attended the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games from 10 to 18 February, with my private secretary, a press officer and a special adviser. This provided an invaluable opportunity to study at first-hand Vancouver’s experience in staging an Olympic Games and to learn lessons for London 2012.

In another written answer the prime minister was asked the same question:

Mr. Hunt:

To ask the Prime Minister how many staff of his Office attended the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. [318778]

The Prime Minister: None.
