Written Answers. - Departmental Funding.

Billy Timmins

Question:

193 Mr. Timmins asked the Minister for Finance if he grants funding to any organisation whose membership is secret or unknown; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2872/03]

I am not aware that my Department grants funding to any organisation whose membership is secret or unknown in a sinister sense, although the Deputy will appreciate that not all organisations publish or make available lists of their members. If the Deputy has a particular concern, I will have the matter looked into on receipt of the necessary details.
