Mr. John D. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when the ambulance bay will be provided at Constabulary House, Russell Street, Armagh City; and if he will make a statement. [119022]

Mr. Ingram

Responsibility for the subject in question has been delegated to the Roads Service under its Chief Executive, Mr. C. James. I have asked him to arrange for a reply to be given.

Letter from C. James to Mr. John. D. Taylor, dated 19 April 2000: The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has asked me to respond to your recently tabled Parliamentary Question about the provision of an ambulance bay at Constabulary House, Russell Street, Armagh. Roads Service is currently progressing the statutory procedures required under Articles 10(4) and 13(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation (Northern Ireland) Order 1997 to authorise that a section of road fronting Constabulary House, Armagh be used for the parking of ambulances. A notice outlining our intention in this respect will be published in the local press tomorrow, Thursday20 April 2000. Assuming there are no objections to our proposal, we anticipate that the parking bay should be operational by the middle of June. I hope you find this information helpful.
