The Assembly’s Hansard records a discussion on its plans (or non plans) for a possible car park expansion (ie shelving decisions on contentious issues). File under shelving decisions on contentious issues… Thanks to the ever eagle-eyed Alan!
“The Chairman (Mr Molloy): Do we want to park that or can we conclude on it?
Mr Campbell: The car park is filling up.
The Chairman (Mr Molloy): We will need traffic wardens . . .
Mr Ford: Yes, but if there is nothing further to consider at this stage it may be something for the ever-expanding car park. . .
Mr P Robinson: Shall we put that issue in the car park?
Mr Murphy: It will have to be a multi-storey.
The Chairman (Mr Molloy): Perhaps underground, even.”
