New Delhi, Aug 30 (IANS) Britain’s Commonwealth Minister Lord David Howell Tuesday declined to comment on the alleged irregularities in the Commonwealth Games New Delhi hosted last year, saying it was India’s internal matter.

“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,” Howell, who is here on a two-day visit, told reporters here when asked how Britain viewed the entire issue of the alleged scam in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

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,” he said on the sidelines of a lecture he delivered on “The Future of the Commonwealth” at the Indian Council of World Affairs.
