Mr. Peter Robinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the total cost of the Maryfield secretariat, including security, from the signing of the Anglo-Irish Agreement to date; and what is the total cost of security for the same period.

Mr. Cope

The cost to the British Government in maintaining the Anglo-Irish secretariat since its establishment in December 1985 to 30 September 1989 was £3,132,000, of which £2,003,000 related to manpower costs for security. The cost to the Irish Government is a matter for them.
