HL Deb 07 September 2004 vol 664 cc100-1WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will give an undertaking that future allocations of funding to agencies in the Language Implementation Board in Northern Ireland will only take place after consultation and agreement with the agencies concerned. [HL4035]

Baroness Amos

I refer the noble Lord to the answer I gave on 20 May 2004(WA 95). It may not always be possible to reach agreement with the North/South Language Body on its budget.
