Volume 459: debated on Wednesday 2 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what his estimate is of what further expenditure on the Maze project will be before the end of 2007; and how much will be spent on (a) consultancy fees, (b) staff costs and (c) facilitating the work of the Maze Panel. (134072)

Estimated expenditure in 2007-08 on the full Maze/Long Kesh programme (including stadium costs) is some £7.6 million.

Of this, £4.1 million is estimated for consultancy fees and £0.4 million for staff costs. The costs of the Maze/Long Kesh Monitoring Group are limited to travel and attendance fees, which last year cost around £2,000.

All expenditure post 8 May will be a matter for the local Executive.
