asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland which public body is charged with responsibility for providing shelter at bus stops in Northern Ireland; how many shelters this body has provided in each year since local government reorganisation in 1973; and under what precise circumstances shelters are erected.

[pursuant to his reply. 6 November 1979, c. 149]: Under existing legislation, the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland has powers to erect bus shelters or to give permission for their erection. The Department has not used its powers to build bus shelters, although some proposals are under examination. However, the Department has given permission to some district councils to build shelters.
