§ 14. Mr. Grogan:
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what discussions he has had on building a national sports stadium for Northern Ireland. 
§ Angela Smith:
Support remains for the principle of a national sports stadium but this must be considered on the grounds of need, long term sustainability and in light of other priorities. The Sports Council for Northern Ireland is presently re-considering options for the way forward on a national stadium and this may provide a basis for discussions with the appropriate stake holders in due course.
