Baroness Gardner of Parkes

asked Her Majesty's Government: What arrangements will the United Kingdom be making to mark the Australian Bicentenary in 1988.

The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Young)

This is an important anniversary and we will wish to see it marked accordingly. A Britain-Australia Bicentennial Committee is being set up under the chairmanship of Sir Peter Gadsden to consider what arrangements might most appropriately be made.
