asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much grant has been paid to the Callyhanna Community Association since its foundation; what the money was intended to be used for; and whether the books, vouchers and accounts of both the paying authority and of the association have been scrutinised by the local government auditor, or other official auditors.

A sum of £500 was paid to Cullyhanna Community Association in 1974 by the Newry and Mourne District Council. It is the only such grant paid to date and was towards the cost of improvements and renovation of a parochial hall, formerly used as a school, in Cullyhanna. The Local Government Auditor has completed his examination of the district council's accounts for the year ended 31st March 1975. The association's accounts are not subject to audit by the local government or other official auditor.
