Northern Ireland Events Company

Volume 684: debated on Wednesday 12 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they propose to provide the Northern Ireland Events Company with more funding for community festivals; if so, how much; and when.[HL6690]

Government have no proposals to provide more funding to the Northern Ireland Events Company for the Community Festivals Fund.

Having reviewed the funding decrease experienced by a specific number of festivals as a result of the new arrangements for funding community festivals, Government have decided to award further transitional funding to three community festivals. This funding will be processed by the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure.
