§ Mr. Peter Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether there are any plans to phase out the Transport Collection at Witham Street, Belfast; and if exhibits have been transferred permanently to other museums recently.
§ Mr. Goodhart
The exhibits at Witham Street, Belfast, are part of the transport collection of the Ulster folk and transport museum. There are plans to house the entire collection at the museum's main site at Cultra when money can be made available for accommodating the larger items.
No exhibits have been transferred permanently to other museums.
