§ Mr. Cotter
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what level of financial and other support his Department plans to provide to Mediation UK in the current financial year. 
§ Mr. Michael
No application has been made by Mediation UK for financial support for this financial year. Mediation UK have met Home Office officials to discuss a possible application for financial support for 1999–2000 and I have also listened to local representatives of Mediation UK to consider their work.
