Asked whether the PM was concerned that G4S recruits were not turning up for work, the PMS said that it was worth recapping on issues that had not been covered by the media. The longest queue at Heathrow the day before had been 25 minutes and was for non-EEA travellers. That was on one of the busiest days ever at Heathrow. The Government had put extra resources in place and was dealing with what was a very challenging period. On transport, traffic had been flowing well in central London. On security, we had been monitoring the situation. The military were very much involved in the Olympic Games but the Government was confident it would deliver a safe and secure Olympic Games.

There were contingency plans in place and we would make sure we had the necessary people in place.

Asked about the knock on effect on street policing if officers were deployed to Olympic events, the PMS said that the Government were deploying the necessary resources.
