To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he now intends to take any action to prevent damage to Ballynahone bog.

[holding answer 21 June 1993]: The Bulrush Peat Company Ltd. has permission for the extraction of peat from part of Ballynahone bog. This followed a detailed public inquiry. While the Department of the Environment, Northern Ireland has no plans to revoke the permission, I shall shortly be announcing a policy statement on how the Government intend to address the issues of peat bogs in Northern Ireland.
