Mr. John D. Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence why the Union flag was not flown on the flag poles at Drumadd barracks, Armagh on Christmas day 1991; what new arrangements will be made to fly the Union flag on appropriate dates at this location; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
The flying of flags at Army establishments is governed by Queen's regulations for the Army. Drumadd barracks, Armagh is not one of the locations in Northern Ireland which is listed in Queen's regulations as authorised to fly the Union flag. The list has not been revised for some time however, and it is now being reviewed.
