Ceist:

164 Mr. Naughten asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will approve an application for funding under the youth service grant scheme for the employment of a national promotions director for the No Name Club in light of the fact that this organisation is entirely run voluntarily and targets a vulnerable section of society; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10299/00]

I am aware of the application made to my Department by the No Name Club for additional funding to enable it to appoint a national promotions director to develop further its programme of support for young people. This request is being considered by my Department at present and a decision will be given in the matter as quickly as possible.
