AVX jobs statement from Sinn Féin councillor Billy Leonard

20 October, 2008

Sinn Féin Coleraine councillor Billy Leonard has challenged Invest NI to respond to recent job losses after the loss of jobs at the AVX.

Cllr Leonard said:

"This announcement is another blow to the community around Coleraine, given all the job losses in the area. It is of course a bigger blow to the specific staff and their families and everyone is feeling for them as they get this worst possible news.

There are many challenges for us in this area and Invest NI must improve their performance, even in these difficult times. Attracting jobs is a massive challenge but even in a recession we have got to make positive efforts for the people of the area." ENDS
