Parliament Lift Update

Following the Trust’s press release on the proposed Government project to install an exterior lift at the Parliament Building which was tabled at the July meeting of the DPC and coverage on the item in the local press, the Trust has written to the Chief Minister proposing a number of solutions for providing disabled access to the building and addressing a number of safety concerns such as emergency evacuation. We are continuing to work on a solution that will retain the character and symmetry of the building whilst providing the required level of access.
