The Government's plans to mark the Queen's diamond jubilee in 2012 were announced in a statement in the House of Commons by Ian Lucas, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
Although plans are still at an early stage Mr Lucas confirmed the following:
Although the Department of Culture, Media and Sport is responsible for co-ordinating Her Majesty’s diamond jubilee celebrations, Lord Mandelson, Secretary of State for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, is the lead Minister responsible for this project.
