To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport on what dates he has visited the headquarters site of the UK Sports Institute since December 1997. 
§ Mr. Banks
[holding answer 26 February 1999]: My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I visited the Sheffield headquarters site of the UKSI on 26 January 1998 and I returned for a second visit on 18 June. We have had several meetings with the UKSC, ESC, Sheffield City Council and the Phoenix consortium throughout this development period to track progress; the most recent one took place on 26 January this year. I will be visiting the site again in April.
