HC Deb 29 March 1999 vol 328 c468W
Mr. Austin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what assessment he has made of potential additional demands upon services provided by the London boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham arising from the millennium celebrations in Greenwich; what additional resources have been made available to those authorities; and if he will make a statement.

Ms Armstrong

The Government take the view that any additional costs will be more than offset by the immense long-term rewards the boroughs will reap as a direct outcome of the Millennium Experience and other Millennium activities planned for the area.
