asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord Bassam of Brighton on 11 December 2007 (WA 46), whether officials of the Northern Lighthouse Board have been included in the study being carried out on the funding of Irish lighthouses. [HL1602]

Officials from the Northern Lighthouse Board have not participated in the evidence study but they have been kept informed of its progress.

Discussions have been held with Trinity House to determine the current collection process of light dues as Trinity House has responsibility for the collection of lights dues on behalf of all three general lighthouse authorities.
