HC Deb 01 July 1997 vol 297 c83W
Mr. Mitchell

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if he will list the public spending implications in respect of(a) land reclamation, (b) infrastructure works, (c) costs, (d) road construction and (e) other items arising from the decision to proceed with a Millennium Exhibition in Greenwich. [5633]

Mr. Chris Smith

All these regeneration costs are included in existing public expenditure plans. The Millennium Exhibition itself has no public spending implications. The Millennium Commission has pledged its support for the project by committing £400 million of National Lottery proceeds to it.
