HL Deb 11 March 2004 vol 658 cc185-6WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the purpose of the Ulster Scots future search organised by the Northern Ireland Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure if the department will not make further resources available to the Ulster Scots community. [HL1713]

Baroness Amos

Future Search is a process whereby interested parties come together to determine and address issues of concern. The Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure hosted a Future Search for Ulster Scots in November 2002. The department and representatives of the Ulster Scots community are now looking at how the issues raised can be taken forward. The availability of resources will be considered as part of this implementation process.
