National Memorial Arboretum

Volume 685: debated on Wednesday 25 October 2006

My honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Defence (Derek Twigg) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I am pleased to advise the House that we have agreed to extend the existing grant-in-aid paid to the National Memorial Arboretum Company Ltd in support of the running costs of the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas, Staffordshire. The current grant of £250,000 a year was due to expire in October 2006. It will be extended for a further three-year period, initially at the current level but increased in line with inflation from October 2007.
