HC Deb 16 December 1999 vol 341 c279W
Mr. Baker

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will publish a list of those invited to attend the Millennium Dome on 31 December, other than those described as ordinary members of the public, who have subsequently indicated they will not be attending.[102255]

Janet Anderson

[holding answer 14 December 1999]: The details of those concerned are held on the Dome Opening Celebration's secure database and are subject to data protection legislation. All those concerned would need to be contacted for their agreement to release their details. The costs of doing so, including the opportunity costs of moving NMEC employees on to such a task, are at this stage of the project disproportionate to the outcome, especially when the results would be uncertain in terms of agreements and refusals.
