Mr. Hanson: No final decision has been made on the proposed Multi-Sports Stadium for Northern Ireland. The position remains, as the Government announced in March, that work is continuing on the viability of the Stadium, particularly in relation to getting agreement on the way forward with the sporting bodies, and that Maze/Long Kesh is the only site being considered. Master planning work, which will include an assessment of public and private transport needs, is already under way for that site.

Mr. Woodward: Through the Northern Ireland Cancer Forum the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety has been working with cancer charities such as Action Cancer and Men Against Cancer to raise awareness of prostate cancer.

A copy of the 2003 Report was issued on a given day last year with every copy of each of the three major Northern Ireland newspapers. The CMO's 2004 Report also carried similar information on these matters and added a website address where further details could be obtained.
