Sir John Biggs-Davision
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if, in the light of the disruption of certain district councils, he will take steps to ensure that payments in support of voluntary bodies concerned with social welfare are continued; and if he will make a statement:
§ Dr. Mawhinney
The Government are aware of the problems faced by a number of voluntary bodies. While payments to these bodies are a matter for the district councils concerned, the Government are keeping the situation under review.
