In May 2016 the House of Commons Northern Ireland Affairs Committee produced a 45-page report entitled “Northern Ireland and the EU Referendum”. It can only be described as scrupulously even-handed but it is an excellent source of basic information such as the amount of EU money coming into the north 2014–2010:

European Regional Development Fund €308 million

European Social Fund Programme €183 million

INTERREG VA €240 million

PEACE IV €229 million

European Fisheries and Maritime Fund €24 million

Rural Development Programme €227 million

CAP Pillar 11 €2,299 million
