Tessa Jowell

Put that Tessa Jowell had said that we would not have bid for the Olympics had we known the current economic conditions, the PMS said that Tessa Jowell had been speaking this afternoon to reiterate that what she had meant was that the economic context had changed and hypothetically, were we to be considering bidding for the Olympics today rather than in 2005, different considerations might have come into play. What she was quite clearly not saying was that it had been the wrong decision to bid for the Olympics.

Tessa Jowell had made her position clear and the PMS added that he would not hypothesise on what the Government would or would not do, were it to be bidding for an Olympic Games today.
