To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what costs were incurred relating to the British pavilion at Expo 2000; and if she will make a statement. [75122]

Ms Hewitt

The Government provided £7.5 million to fund the UK pavilion at Expo 2000 in Hanover.

The UK pavilion attracted 2.6 million visitors over five months and took 1,242 trade enquiries. The pavilion itself was designed to have an after-life in the spirit of Expo's theme of sustainability.
