OS Coalition meeting at City Hall
As part of its continued campaign on the costs of the Olympic (‘London’) Stadium, the Olympic Stadium Coalition has met with Liberal Democrat, Caroline Pidgeon MBE AM, to discuss London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s promise of an investigation into the finances of the cost of the development.
They issued the following statement
‘As a campaign we have put a great deal of work into uncovering the facts of the case, and ensuring that it’s in the hands of the people with the power to effect change and influence. We’ve worked hard to ensure support from across the political spectrum, and we’re immensely grateful to Caroline Pidgeon, Conservative AM Andrew Boff, and former Labour AM Murad Qureshi, who have put a considerable amount of work into this issue for some time.
‘We hope to meet with Sadiq Khan, and we will be writing to him to disclose the significant information we’ve gathered about the operational costs of the stadium and its cost to the UK taxpayer. Ultimately, we’re seeking to ensure that it does the least damage possible to Premier League and EFL clubs not just in London, but across the country.’
