§ Mr. Worthington
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will state the populations represented by his proposed education and library boards and, in each case, the number of people represented by each member of each board. 
§ Mr. Ancram
Based on the 1993 mid-year estimates, the population of the four areas proposed would be as follows:
Population North Eastern 375,500 Western 267,600 Southern 385,100 Greater Belfast 603,600
