HC Deb 07 July 1992 vol 211 cc111-2W
Mr. Mallon

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the current projected start date for work on the new fire station, Crossmaglen, Newry; what are the reasons for delays in the commencement of the building work; and if he will take steps to ensure that the work is started within the current financial year.

Mr. Atkins

The fire authority considered tenders for the fire station at Crossmaglen on 23 June 1992 and awarded a contract. Work will commence within the next few months and should be completed in the spring of 1993. The delay in the commencement of building work arose as a result of the authority's decision to retender.
