§ Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans his Department has to celebrate the millennium in Wales; and at what estimated cost. 
§ Mr. Ron Davies
The celebrations of the Millennium in Wales, as for other parts of the UK, will be co-ordinated by the New Millennium Experience Company (NMEC). My Department will work closely with NMEC and in particular with the office which they intend to open in Cardiff within the next month. The amount of lottery funding to be devoted to the celebrations in Wales will be announced soon: this will be supplemented by the sponsorship funding which NMEC intends to raise.
