HC Deb 14 March 2001 vol 364 cc650-1W
Ms Dari Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when he will publish the Culture Online Vision report. [154138]

Mr. Chris Smith

I am tomorrow publishing the vision for Culture Online, the first stage in the development of the business case for this major new initiative.

The vision sets out how Culture Online could deliver the knowledge and resources of our museums and galleries, libraries and archives, theatres and orchestras, into classrooms and living rooms across the country.

The next stage in the development of Culture Online will be the production of a full business case, which will be used as the basis for a bid to the Capital Modernisation Fund.

Copies of the report have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
