§ Matthew Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list the dates of the meetings and contacts that(a) special advisers and (b) Ministers in his Department have had with (i) Mr. Roy Parker, (ii) Sir Richard Needham and (iii) Mr. Shaun Harte since 2 May 1997; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Dr. John Reid
There is no record of any such meetings or contacts taking place with either Mr. Parker or Mr. Harte.
Sir Richard Needham is a frequent visitor to Northern Ireland and it is possible that he might have had some contact with my Department in the course of these visits. However, we have been unable to find any record of any formal meetings or contacts with Sir Richard at ministerial or special adviser level.
