HC Deb 28 January 1982 vol 16 cc419-20W
Mr. J. Enoch Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what statutory provisions govern the nomenclature of streets and estates in Ulster; and whether he will review them.

Mr. David Mitchell

The statutory provisions which govern the naming of streets and estates in Northern Ireland are as follows

  1. (a) Sections 64 and 65 of the Town Improvement Clauses Act 1847 as incorporated in Section 38 of the Town Improvement (Ireland) Act 1854;
  2. (b) Section 21 of the Public Health Acts (Amendment) Act 1907; and
  3. (c) Section 19 of the Public Health and Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (Northern Ireland) 1949.

For Belfast city council, section 100 of the Belfast Improvement Act 1845 also applies. I am not as yet aware of any reason to review the existing legislation.
