That this House congratulates the architects, engineers, Gateshead Council and all concerned in the design, construction and operation of Gateshead Millennium Bridge on winning the most coveted Royal Institute of British Architects annual Stirling Prize; notes the comments of the judging panel that the bridge is 'outstanding' and 'the one new piece of architecture that will be remembered by people this year'; further notes that this recognition of excellence by the RIBA is further evidence of the quality of the renaissance taking place on the banks of the Tyne and a positive contribution to the joint bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2008.
