To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what action the Government has taken to ensure that the interests of the United Kingdom are properly represented at Expo 92 in Seville.

[holding answer 20 January 1992]: The Government have committed £25 million towards the British presence at Expo 92. This is more than was provided for any previous world exposition. The British pavilion is an outstanding design by Nicholas Grimshaw, an excellent example of the high quality of British engineering, including a spectacular wall of water. Inside, its exciting exhibition demonstrates British innovation and discovery. A wide range of cultural events has been organised for the six month period of Expo 92 and this, together with the pavilion, will show our originality in arts and culture.
