The British commonwealth minister on Tuesday refused to comment on the alleged Commonwealth Games scam saying it was India's internal matter which was still being examined.
"The internal matters are internal matters for India and they have been examined. As far as we are concerned, the Games did take place and were a success," British minister of state for commonwealth lord David Howell told reporters here.
The minister was asked how Britain viewed the entire issue of the alleged scam as a participant, on the sidelines of an event at the Indian Council of World Affairs.
Howell said these "issues are really internal matters. I have been questioned about them in the House of Lords in London time to time and I have always said that these are the matters you (India) are examining."
Asked about the preparations for the London Olympics scheduled to be held in July-August next year, he said the preparations were on in full swing there.
