§ Mr. Gregory Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what progress has been made in relation to proposed action to be taken against those allegedly responsible for the demolition of properties for which no planning permission was sought. 
§ Angela Smith
Consent is required for the demolition of listed buildings and for the demolition of unlisted buildings within a Conservation Area.
If a building is demolished without the necessary consent being obtained, enforcement action will be taken. Prosecution action will also be pursued if appropriate, as is currently happening in relation to the demolition of two listed buildings in the hon. Gentleman's constituency last summer.
