Question:

Could you please disclose all discussion documents and correspondence, including emails between the department and Locog and the ODA, relating to the requested £20m savings requested of the ODA during the October 2010 spending review.

I would like to see how the department broke that £20m or any correspondence that shows it was up to the Locog and ODA how to attain that target.

Did DCMS specifically request the wrap for the main stadium be included in that £20m? If so, who proposed it be axed in the first place and please disclose all details of the elements of the £7m savings for it.

Was DCMS aware that the ODA’s main contractor had already had a tender for that wrap and that bids of between £1m and £2m had been received?

Please disclose all discussion in 2010 and 2011 of Dow Chemical as a potential supplier for the wrap

In Response:

We provided the relevant documentation within scope of the request and exempted some of the information.
