§ Lord Laird
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Who was on the guest list supplied by the Northern Ireland Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure for a reception in 10 Downing Street on 11 May 2004; and on what basis the list was compiled. [HL2819]
§ Baroness Amos
In accordance with Part 2 Paragraph 12 of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information, on privacy of an individual, it would be inappropriate to list the names of those on the guest list.
The Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure was asked to provide a list of 30 names plus 20 reserves for attendance at a reception to celebrate the UK's cultural sectors and in particular the relationship between national and regional arts organisations.
