To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) what steps his Department took to investigate allegations made in the House by the hon. Member for Belfast, East (Mr. Robinson) on 8 February 2006, Official Report, columns 957-58, of terrorist-related activity by the Sheridan Group; and if he will make a statement; (191378)

(2) when he expects to answer question 191378, on the Sheridan Group tabled on 27 February 2008.

I apologise for the delay in responding. All allegations of criminality drawn to the attention of my Department are referred to the PSNI. In this case the Chief Constable advised that the PSNI had no evidence to suggest that the Sheridan Group had been engaged in criminal activity.
