§ 25. Mrs. Mahon
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many families have received help from the Government programmes of victim support during the past 12 months. 
§ Mr. Ingram
In terms of initiatives for victims of the troubles, figures for the number of families that have received help are not collected centrally. Many families are helped through the Government's funding of victim support groups and other Government initiatives designed to alleviate the suffering of those most affected by the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
