§ Mr. Efford
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what options are being considered for the long-term use of the Millennium Dome park-and-ride sites. 
§ Mr. Hill
[holding answer 22 November 1999]: Although the Millennium Experience will be a car free event, it is acknowledged that some visitors will wish to make the first leg of their journey by car. The New Millennium Experience Company is therefore to manage a small number of formal park-and-ride facilities around London at which a limited number of visitors each day, who pre-book in advance, will be able to leave their vehicles before completing their journey on convenient public transport links.
Whether in existing car parks or in specifically created sites, the park-and-ride capacity is temporary and required only for the duration of the Millennium Experience. The New Millennium Experience Company is not therefore considering options for the longer-term use of these sites.
