§ Mr. Peter Robinson
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list the level of building control inspection fees and planning fees since 1980; and if it is his intention to increase the fees during the incoming financial year.
§ Mr. Hanley
Building control inspection fees were introduced in 1982 and increased in 1984, 1987 and 1990. Details of the charges are contained in tables 1 to 4 of SR 1982 No. 392, SR 1983 No. 388, SR 1986 No. 331 and SR 1989 No. 420. It is the Government's intention to consult later this year on a proposal to increase fees for prescribed building control functions during the financial year 1991–92.
