HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 c83W
Mr. Ottaway

To ask the Minister without Portfolio what contingency plans have been made to maintain the supply of power to the Millennium Dome in the event of a collapse of the power supply system. [46457]

Mr. Mandelson

The New Millennium Experience Company (NMEC) has designed a degree of resilience into the supply to the Dome site and the site infrastructure such that minor power failures would not disrupt the running and operation of the Millennium Experience. In the event of a total and sustained power failure, the NMEC will be able to maintain safety systems.
