Three-month Dome delay

THE COMPLETION date for the Millennium Dome's structure has been set back by three months.

In a parliamentary answer, Dome minister Peter Mandelson said: 'The construction of the Millennium Dome is scheduled for completion in September 1998.'

Previously a June 1998 completion date for the structure of the Millennium Dome had been set. The fit-out is expected to take a year from September next year.

But Gabrielle Owtram, spokeswoman for client New Millennium Experience, denied there was a setback. 'The completion date was always going to be the end of the summer,' she said.
