To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what progress is being made in establishing a world class visitor centre at the Giant's Causeway in County Antrim. [103349]

I have met with the key players involved in establishing a world class visitors centre at the Giants Causeway and a further round of follow-up meetings with officials in my Department has also been concluded.Efforts are now being made to exploit the common ground that has emerged from these discussions. While both myself and my colleague the Minister for Culture, Arts and Leisure are finalising our thoughts on a way forward, it should be stressed that progress will be achieved only if the relevant parties work together and with Government to ensure that a world class solution is achieved.
