HC Deb 15 January 1998 vol 304 c282W
Mr. Keith Simpson

To ask the Minister without Portfolio what specific aspects of the Millennium Experience will directly relate to Norfolk. [23049]

Mr. Mandelson

I expect the content of the Millennium Experience at Greenwich to appeal to, and be relevant to, people of all ages and interests from all over the UK, including Norfolk. The Experience will be divided into different zones looking at who we are, what we do, and where we live, in a way that will engage, inspire, and educate all visitors.

In addition, there will be a national programme associated with the Experience. This has the same overarching theme of "Time to make a Difference" and will encourage participation by individuals from all areas of the country. The New Millennium Experience Company is currently in the process of setting up teams in the nine regions of England (Norfolk is included in the Eastern region) and in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Further details of the national programme will be announced in due course.
