Select Committee on Northern Ireland Affairs Minutes of Evidence


ANNEX 1

MAP SHOWING DISTRIBUTION OF QUARRIES AND PITS THROUGHOUT NORTHERN IRELAND


  These are the figures for quarries within 25 miles of the border. Obviously pits/quarries can open and close at fairly short notice so we cannot guarantee that this figure is precisely correct but it will be very near.

  Total number active quarries/pits in NI 179.

  Total within 25 miles of border: 125 of which 63 are hard rock and 65 sand and gravel.
