asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, in the light of the decision by the Minister for Post and Telegraphs in the Irish Government to initiate a study of the implications of legalising citizens band radio in the Republic, whether he will now initiate a study of the problems which would arise in Northern Ireland if citizens band radio were authorised south of the border but not north.
