HC Deb 22 March 2001 vol 365 cc337-8W
Mr. Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what payments were made by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund over the past year. [151770]

Dr. Reid

I believe my hon. Friend is referring to funds allocated by the Victims Liaison Unit in the Northern Ireland Office which provides support to victims of the Troubles.

In the past year, the Victims Liaison Unit allocated £1 million to the Northern Ireland Memorial Fund, bringing the total paid to the fund to date to £2 million. The fund will receive a further £3 million over the next three years.

£3 million was also provided for the scheme to core fund victims and survivors groups over a two-year period from 2000–02. To date £2,987,938 has been allocated from this scheme. The allocation of grants to individual groups is shown in the table.
