§ Rev. Ian Paisley
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what legal advice he sought before he resumed payment of grants to the Gaelic Athletics Association, which by rule excludes from its membership all members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary and Her Majesty's Armed Forces.
§ Mr. Carter
As I indicated to the hon. Member in the reply which I gave to his Question on 20th April, before the decision572W was taken to resume payment of grants advice was sought on the effect of Section 19 of the Northern Ireland Constitution Act 1973.
