MILLENNIUM DOME – 6 November 2000

Dr Julian Lewis: If he will make a statement on the future of the Millennium Dome after 31 December?

[SUPPLEMENTARY:] One thing that the dome and its contents will not be doing next year is fulfilling the Prime Minister's boast that they would form the first paragraph of his general election manifesto. Is the Minister aware that last week the national health service pulled the plug on four community hospitals, including a long-awaited £22 million community hospital serving New Forest? How many more future consequences will there be for the people of this country as a result of the squandering of three quarters of a billion pounds on the Millennium Dome and its contents?
