HC Deb 27 March 1975 vol 889 cc234-5W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he will make a statement on the Enterprise Ulster project at Camphill.

Mr. Merlyn Rees:

Work on the Ulster-American exposition and Folk Park is one of Enterprise Ulster's major projects, providing valuable employment west of the Bann. The cost of the work at the Folk Park is borne by Enterprise Ulster and a significant contribution to the cost of the information centre in the Park is being made by the Matthew T. Mellon Foundation.

The project will provide a unique educational and tourist attraction illustrating the story of emigration from Ulster to the New World and will be Northern Ireland's major contribution to the commemoration of the American Bicentennial Year in 1976.
