Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what payments the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission has made to Stratagem in the last 12 months; for what purpose; and if he will place in the Library a copy of the contract under which such payments have been made. (305159)

No payments have been made by the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission to Stratagem in the last 12 months. On 27 October 2008 the Commission paid Stratagem the sum of £411.25 (£350 plus VAT) for an annual subscription for monthly political updates covering the period 1 August 2008 to 21 July 2009. The service included updates on parliamentary business supplied to staff members by email and SMS. This subscription was not subsequently renewed at the expiry date.
