§ Mr. McGrady
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what steps have been taken to upgrade 615W and revise the Downpatrick area plan; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Moss
The Department has a programme of area plan work and I regret that it will be several years before a review of the Down area plan can begin. However, the housing needs and development pressures of Downpatrick are monitored on a continuous basis and, if necessary, proposals can be considered as amendments to the existing plan.
