HC Deb 23 June 1977 vol 933 cc1721-2
4. Mr. McCusker

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much the Northern Ireland Police Authority has budgeted for in the year 1977–78 on capital building rojects.

Mr. Dunn

Provision of £3,820,000 has been made in Police Authority estimates for capital building projects in the year 1977–78.

Mr. McCusker

Bearing in mind that the Minister reneged on his promise to the people of Lurgan to rebuild their police station, will he look into the budget and try to find a few pounds in order to clear and secure the site which we hope will eventually be used to rebuild the station, so that I can convince those people that he is genuine and honest in his assurance that they will have that station soon?

Mr. Dunn

I do not share the hon. Member's strictures upon me. He would not expect me to do so. Indeed, I tried to explain to him during an Adjournment debate exactly why this decision was made. I thought he had accepted it then. I shall, however, bring his comments to the notice of those who are concerned.
