To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what costs were incurred by the Northern Ireland Civic Forum in the last 12 months; and how many times the body met during the same period. 
I refer the hon. Lady to the answer I gave to question reference 100724. Since providing this answer, an additional £18,535 administration costs were met in 2002–03 for actions carried out by the Civic Forum prior to suspension.
The Civic Forum met on three occasions in plenary format during the period April 2002 to 14 October 2002.
