Sport: Northern Ireland Stadiums

Volume 691: debated on Wednesday 2 May 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord Rooker on 18 April (WA 83) concerning a national stadium for Northern Ireland, what are their requirements for the project; and whether these requirements have been applied to other projects. [HL3395]

The Government's key requirements for a shared future multi-sports stadium are that it will be operationally viable; meet the needs of Association Football, Rugby Football and Gaelic Games, and be situated in a location acceptable to all three sports bodies. These requirements are specific to this project.
