Answered By: 
The Mayor

The decision on whether to bid for the Commonwealth Games rests entirely with Commonwealth Games England, not the GLA or the Mayor. As far as I am aware, no estimate has been made as to the likely cost of bidding to hold the Games in London.

However, I would be keen to support a bid if the financial conditions are right.
