I am writing to confirm that the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission does not hold the information which you requested on 3rd June 2019. In your request you asked for the following information:

"In relation to the 2017 Confidence and Supply Arrangement between the DUP and Conservative party.

1. I wish to know - how much of the money that was pledged for Northern Ireland in the Agreement has been spent (To clarify, I do not refer to amount of money released by Westminster to the Northern Ireland Executive, but how much has been spent by the NIE)

2. How this money has been spent? I would be grateful if this could include a breakdown by sector, or individual schemes or hospitals/ schools to have benefited from the money. I would also be grateful if this could give an indication of timescale e.g. in which months or years the money was spent"

Information regarding the Northern Ireland government is a matter for the Northern Ireland Executive. The Northern Ireland Assembly Commission is a separate entity to the Northern Ireland Executive.

Please find contact details for the NI Executive as follows:

You have the right to request a formal review by the Northern Ireland Assembly Commission and if you wish to do so, please write to me at the above address.

If after such an internal review you are still unhappy with the response, you have the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF who will undertake an independent review.

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please remember to quote the reference number above.

Yours sincerely

Information Standards Officer
