16. Mr.

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when she plans to close the look-out posts in County Armagh. [16247]

The decision to relocate 250 troops to Great Britain and the closure of the army base at Kilkeel are the most recent examples of actions taken commensurate with the changing situation in Northern Ireland. These follow significant de-escalatory measures already taken since the Provisional IRA ceasefire on 20 July. There are no plans, at present, to close the observation towers in County Armagh.
