asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have any plans to mark the 300th anniversary of the Act of Union 1707.[HL7737]

The 300th anniversary of the Act of Union between England and Scotland will be marked by a commemorative £2 coin which will be issued in 2007, as announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in Parliament on Thursday 15 June 2006.

At present I am not aware of any other plans to mark the 300th anniversary of the Act of Union between England and Scotland.
