asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will seek to extend the time limit imposed on the use of moneys under Belfast area of need allocation in order to honour the commitment given to construct a swimming pool in the Donegall Pass area; and if he will give the date for construction and the cost of this project.

[pursuant to his reply, 8 May 1980, c 233]: The provision of a swimming pool in the Donegall Pass area is not dependent on Belfast area of need funds and grant at the rate of 75 per cent. has been offered to Belfast city council on approved construction costs. Clearance of a suitable site is the problem and efforts to have the matter brought to a satisfactory conclusion are continuing. It is not possible to anticipate the costs of the preject or when work on the pool will start.
