§ Dr. Howells
Following the orderly winding down of operations by the New Millennium Experience Company (NMEC), the company's directors today took steps to commence a Members Voluntary Liquidation. The Minister for Housing and Planning, NMEC's sole shareholder, has formally appointed Richard Heis and Stephen Treharne, two partners of KPMG, as liquidators.
NMEC's final annual report and financial statements for the period 1 January 2001 to 18 December 2001 will be available tomorrow and I will arrange for copies of the report to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.206W
