HC Deb 23 June 1997 vol 296 cc374-5W
17. Mr. Timms

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what are his Department's proposals for the millennium exhibition. [3100]

Mr. Chris Smith

Last week my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister confirmed our full backing for the millennium exhibition. We took this decision on the basis of five clear commitments to the British people: the exhibition will have a durable legacy; it will have nationwide relevance and links; it will have a content that reflects technological progress and provides a window to the future; it will cost no more public money, other than that required for site clearance; and it will have an enhanced creative team.
