HC Deb 20 March 1997 vol 292 c821W
Mr. Robert McCartney

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement about the investigation into the fire at Groomsport primary school in 1996 indicating when(a) the site will be cleared and (b) rebuilding will commence. [21007]

Mr. Ancram

The Forensic Science Agency's final report on the fire is awaited by the South-Eastern education and library board which is responsible in the first instance for any reinstatement of damaged accommodation at the school. The board is currently considering some capital works to address the school's needs, but this will be subject to the availability of resources.
