(2) what her latest estimate is of the cost of the memorial fountain to Diana, Princess of Wales; and if she will make a statement. [71244]

[holding answer 18 July 2002]: I announced on 31 July that I had selected Gustafson Porter to design the fountain to commemorate the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. Work to design and construct the fountain will begin immediately. £3 million has been allocated to the project. I expect the main part of the memorial to be in place by the sixth anniversary of her death; the establishment of the surrounding landscaping will take longer.
