The Millennium Dome is at the centre of controversy once again. Reports in The Guardian last week claimed that the building was no longer to be sold, but leased to a private company. But a DTLR spokesperson denied the report this week, claiming it was still for sale and there were still a number of interested parties. Housing minister Lord Falconer revealed that the cost of the Dome since it closed a year ago has reached £21.5 million. He was then also forced to apologise for misleading the Lords over the solvency of the New Millennium Experience Company, which runs the Dome. He had claimed last week that the company had never been insolvent.This week he apologised and admitted that for a period last year the NMEC was technically insolvent. Lord Falconer stated that his original information was 'unintentionally incorrect'.
