§ Mr. Nigel Griffiths
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proposals he has for the future funding of the community relations councils in Scotland. 
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
Race Equality Councils (REC's) are co-funded by the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE), local authorities and other bodies. I understand that the CRE is consulting with REC's in Scotland as elsewhere about how to improve delivery of race equality.
