To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, pursuant to his answer of 5 June, Official Report, column 387, why some gargoyles at the Old Cross, Newtownards were replaced.

Gargoyles decayed beyond recognition were removed and replaced with new ones based on those remaining. The two original gargoyles, which were better preserved, were retained in order to perpetuate the market cross.
