To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will publish details of financial assistance provided by the International Fund for Ireland in each of the last four years to date for(a)construction of new hotels and (b)refurbishment of existing hotels, together with details of the purpose for which each qualifying hotel project was assisted.

The International Fund for Ireland is administered by an independent board appointed by the United Kingdom and Irish Governments. All questions pertaining to the disbursement of funds are a matter for the board and accordingly I have arranged to pass the hon. Gentleman's question to the chairman for reply.
