HL Deb 04 November 2003 vol 654 c89WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord President on 8 July (WA 24), why the Belfast Education and Library Board has no plans to support the Ulster Scots community through connections with Scotland; and whether it will now make such plans. [HL4815]

Baroness Amos

This is a. matter for the Belfast Education and Library Board. However, I understand from the chief executive that the board, in the context of its international policy, continues to seek ways of developing connections with other authorities, including Scotland. Discussions have taken place with a number of authorities but as yet no formal agreements have been reached.
