Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord President on 12 July (WA 118) concerning the North/South Ministerial Council Secretariat in Armagh, whether meetings were held with the Ulster Political Research Group, which included both Joint Secretaries; if so, when these meetings were held; where they were held; and for what purpose. [HL3818]

Baroness Amos

As was made clear in my answer of 12 July (WA 118), the individuals concerned attended these meetings in their capacity as officials of their respective administrations. The contacts concerned form part of the overall policy of community engagement endorsed by those administrations.
