§ Mrs. Roche
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which Ministers are participating in the steering group responsible for co-ordinating the United Kingdom's 657W involvement in D-day commemorations; how often the group plans to meet; and in what form the group's deliberations will be published.
§ Mr. Hanley
The ministerial steering group directing the Government's official 50th anniversary of D-day commemorative events is chaired by my noble Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Defence. The deputy chairman is my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for National Heritage. At present, the group meets every two weeks; as its deliberations are often informal they are not published.
