Lord Falconer of Thoroton: The Government are in discussion with Legacy plc, the second shortlisted bidder in the competition to sell the Dome. Should Legacy plc be selected as preferred bidder, Ministers will make a decision on the division of proceeds according to the make-up of the proposal, the land required and the financial offer.
Lord Falconer of Thoroton: The decision to shortlist Dome Europe and Legacy plc in May of this year was made by the Minister for local Government and Regeneration, myself, the Minister for Tourism, Film and Broadcasting, and the Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
Lord Falconer of Thoroton: Under the current competition rules, no new bids for the Dome or the Millennium Experience site can be accepted. However, a number of expressions of interest have been received by the competition team since August and have been passed to English Partnerships to incorporate in their review of options for the use of the Millennium Experience site. These expressions of interest are commercially confidential at this stage.
