Expenditure incurred on the Millennium Experience by the New Millennium Experience Company (NMEC) was as follows:
£ million April 1997–March 1998 90 April 1998–March 1999 179 April–December 1999 330 January–December 2000 177 January–December 2001 18
These figures include the cost of the London Riverside new year's eve celebrations of 31 December 1999. It is not possible to separate the amount of expenditure by NMEC on the dome as the national programme included elements both at the dome itself and throughout the country. Expenditure incurred by NMEC before 1 April 1997 is included under 1997–98. The figure for 2001 takes account of rebates and savings on costs provided for in the previous years' accounts.
Expenditure on the Millennium Dome by English Partnerships was as follows:
£ million March 1999–February 2001 6.70 July–December 2001 9.75
All costs incurred by English Partnerships will be recovered from eventual sale proceeds.
