Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Welcome for Jeffery Donaldson comments on Maze-Long Kesh site

1 April, 2008

Sinn Féin Lisburn Councillor Paul Butler MLA has welcomed the comments from Cllr Jeffrey Donaldson MP MLA at last night's Lisburn Council meeting that he and the DUP group on Lisburn council support the stadium being built at the Maze-Long Kesh site.

Mr. Butler said:

"I welcome comments from Jeffrey Donaldson last night that he and the DUP on Lisburn council still support the Maze-Long Kesh site as the location for the new stadium.

"I also welcome the decision by Lisburn council to be more pro-active in promoting the site as the only credible location for the stadium.

"Mr. Donaldson's remarks and the council's decision are particularly important against the background of a delay by Ministers Edwin Poots and Peter Robinson in responding to the business plan for the location of the stadium.

"I am now calling on both ministers to end the uncertainty by supporting their colleagues and indeed Lisburn council by endorsing the business plan and give the green light to the building of the new stadium." ENDS
