asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many prison officer staff vacancies there are, by grade, in each prison in Northern Ireland.

As at 25 January 1980 vacancies in the prison officer grades of the Northern Ireland prison service were as follows:in redevelopment areas No. 19 and 22N, respectively; and how many dwellings will be involved in the first phase of each of those areas in Belfast.

These are matters for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive but I understand that the first phase of 19 dwellings in redevelopment area No. 22N is due to begin in August 1980. In redevelopment area No. 19 work is still progressing on the identification of a site for the first phase and a starting date has not yet been determined.
