Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord President on 10 May (WA 1) concerning the Northern Ireland Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure, whether the department funded a visit of officials in April 2001 to attend a function in Washington organised by the Ulster-Scots Agency; and, if so, whether that visit was included in the answer. [HL2815]

Baroness Amos

This visit was among those included in the Written Answer I gave on 10 May (Official Report Col WA 1). In April 2001 officials undertook a number of engagements in Washington. This included attending a reception organised by the Ulster-Scots Agency.
