Gordon Brown tells Olympic workers country is 'proud' of their efforts

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has convened his Cabinet for their first meeting since parliamentary recess at the Olympic Park site, where he told workers the country was “proud” of their efforts.

Mr Brown, who yesterday toured the site of the 2012 aquatics centre, said: “I think the whole of our country will be proud to see that the preparations for the Olympics are not only on time and on budget, but that these superb buildings are going to be ones that grace the whole world.”

The Prime Minister briefed ministers at the east London site about the G20 meeting of finance ministers, which will be held today.

A Downing Street spokesman said Cabinet members were updates on the global and domestic economic situation, which Mr Darling indicated could experience growth before the end of the year.
