§ Sir Ivan Lawrence
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further grants he intends to make to INFORM, the information network focus on new religious movements.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
Funding was originally provided to INFORM for a period of three years from 1987. This was extended for a further three years in 1990. Given competing bids for assistance from other voluntary sector groups, and the pressures on public expenditure generally, the Government have decided not to provide any additional funding for INFORM beyond the existing provision. Nor do the Government intend to fund any other groups working in this field.
