Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has welcomed the unified endorsement of support for Anna Lo at this morning’s Environment Committee meeting in the Assembly.
The West Tyrone MLA said:
“At the beginning of the committee meeting I raised the issue of the racial abuse on the committee chair Anna Lo and every party present endorsed my comments of support for her.
“I want to put on record that Anna Lo as Chairperson has consistently discharged her duties in an equal and fair manner and has the respect of all committee members.
“Anna Lo has the absolute right to go about her work as an MLA without being subjected to racial harassment or abuse of any kind.”
