Ms Mowlam

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what events his Department has itself organised to commemorate the D-day landings; what other events are included in the co-ordinated plans; and which Members of political parties have been invited to these events.

Mr. Sproat

In April, the Department of National Heritage arranged a launch of the popular programme of D-day commemorative events and a memorial in Grosvenor square to which members of the main Opposition parties were invited. It is organising a "Tribute to the Normandy Campaign" family day in Hyde Park on 14 August. An invitation list has not yet been drawn up, but members from the main parties will be included. There are some 700 separate events being organised by others in different parts of the country.
