To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he now intends to take any action to prevent damage to Ballynahone bog.

Mr. Atkins

While the Department of the Environment, Northern Ireland has no plans to revoke the permission, I shall shortly be announcing a policy statement on how the Government intend to address the issues of peat bogs in Northern Ireland.
