HC Deb 02 April 1998 vol 309 c607W
Rev. Ian Paisley

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if she will restrict the number of mobile phone base stations that can be mounted on one(a) mast, (b) building and (c) other structures. [37098]

Mr. Paul Murphy

No. There are no plans to use planning controls to restrict the number of base stations in this way. The sharing of masts etc., reduces the overall numbers required, and their impact on the environment.
