For immediate use: Thursday 23 September, 2010

Commonwealth Games England and its 17 member sports today unanimously agreed that they will go to the Delhi Games.

CGE's Chef de Mission, Craig Hunter, and our team in Delhi, are now seeing the improved levels of resourcing which are required to resolve the significant operational issues, but we will continue to monitor the situation daily to ensure the Village and stadia are safe and fit for purpose.

The Board continues to press the Organising Committee of the Commonwealth Games Federation for assurances on both the stadia and the accommodation as well as liaising with the British Government. At all times the safety and security of our team is paramount.
