London Zoo Lease — [Dame Caroline Dinenage in the Chair] (14 Mar 2023)

Jim Shannon: I commend the hon. Gentleman for bringing forward this debate. It is entitled “London Zoo Lease”, but we have Belfast Zoo in Northern Ireland, which is doing similar work, with conservation of endangered species at the forefront.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Exploris (11 Nov 2013)

Arlene Foster: ...on the issue very well.  I will not name him, but one of the Belfast MLAs, of which there are many, so I am not pointing one of them out, said to me, "If Exploris gets funding, does that mean that Belfast Zoo can come and look for additional funding, because it is supported by Belfast City Council?"  The important thing is that, if we are able to help and assist Exploris, we will do so...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Zoos (Regional Economic Development) (14 Dec 2011)

Mark Prisk: ...clearly the delights of his constituency and how those local natural attractions have created some 400 jobs as part of the broader tourism industry.

William Humphrey: ...of choice. The document’s emphasis is on how Glengormley functions as part of Newtownabbey. With respect, that is somewhat short-sighted. As other Members mentioned, 300,000 people visit Belfast Zoo. Glengormley should be marketed as part of north Belfast and the greater Newtownabbey area. The basin that surrounds it provides great opportunities. It is important that traders, council and...
