QUESTIONING AUTHORITY: In London, Hope & Kelso report LOCOG officials involved “in the collapse of the London 2012 Stadium deal will be questioned before Parliament to explain their use of public money.” Olympic Park Legacy CEO Andrew Altman “is among the officials who will be called before the influential Public Accounts Committee on Dec. 14.” Others who will be questioned are Olympic Development Authority CEO Dennis Hone, LOCOG CEO Paul Deighton and U.K. Department for Culture, Media and Sport Permanent Secretary Jonathan Stephens (London TELEGRAPH, 10/12).
MORE LONDON CONSTRUCTION: REUTERS’ Mike Collett cited EPL club Fulham execs as saying that the club plans “to increase the capacity at their picturesque Craven Cottage from 25,700 to 30,000.” Fulham has played at the venue “since 1896.” Last week EPL club Chelsea, “who play at Stamford Bridge, two kilometers from Craven Cottage, said they were looking at options to move from the ground which has been their home since they were formed in 1905” (REUTERS, 10/9).
