HC Deb 08 August 1972 vol 842 c376W
Mr. John E. B. Hill

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what progress has been made in planning the celebrations next year of Great Britain's entry into Europe.

Mrs. Thatcher

Planning by the committees under the chairmanship of Lord Goodman and Lord Mancroft has now reached an advanced stage—more than 150 events are being arranged. Details will be announced shortly.

In addition to the £250,000 set aside for activities planned by Lord Goodman's Committee, the Government have agreed to make up to £100,000 available to Lord Mancroft's Committee. Parliament will be asked to approve the necessary supplementary estimates in due course.
