§ Mr. Roger King
To ask the Minister for the Arts if he will visit Birmingham during its year as Arts Council city of music in 1992.
§ Mr. Renton
I was delighted to be present at the launch on 7 October of "Sounds like Birmingham", which sets out a full and exciting range of events to celebrate Birmingham's year as City of Music. It will also play a prominent part in National Music Day. I am inviting the EC Ministers of Culture to join me in Birmingham on 7 September 1992 to mark our presidency of the European Communities.
