Doherty - Trimble should focus on getting process back on track

24 October, 2003

Sinn Féin Vice President Pat Doherty MP has said that David Trimble should 'concentrate on getting the agreement he reached with Sinn Féin and the two government back on track'.

Mr. Doherty said:

"The fact is that we had an agreement between Sinn Féin, the UUP and the two governments. David Trimble, for whatever reason, choose not to go through with that agreement at the last minute.

" This has created very obvious difficulties for the process. However we all should now concentrate on trying to build on the progress that was undoubtedly made over recent weeks and months and get this process back on track.

" That is a collective responsibility and Mr Trimble must now move to undo the damage caused by his actions on Tuesday." ENDS
