§ Mr. Bob Russell
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans he has to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the Island of St. Helena. 
§ Mr. Battle
Various events are being arranged in St. Helena throughout 2002 to celebrate the quincentenary of the discovery of the island. These include sports days, carnivals, a son et lumière and musical pageant, as well as the opening of the new museum to which we have made a financial contribution.
We are in touch with the Governor about other ways to celebrate this anniversary.
