Northern Ireland: Atlantic Philanthropies

Volume 716: debated on Tuesday 5 January 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have been asked by the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission since July whether it can seek or accept further funding from Atlantic Philanthropies; and what are the proposals for three such funded projects being considered by the Commission. [HL569]

The Northern Ireland Office has received no formal requests from the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission to access external funding from Atlantic Philanthropies since July 2009. If the commission wishes to formulate proposals for external funding, that is a matter for the commission and the noble Lord may wish to write to it directly.
