McKay seconds vote of no confidence in Sammy Wilson

12 February, 2009

Sinn Féin MLA and the party's environmental spokesperson Daithí McKay has seconded a vote of no confidence in Minister for the Environment Sammy Wilson at today's Environment Committee meeting at Stormont.

Speaking after the meeting Mr McKay said,

"Sammy Wilson's actions in relation to the environment and in particularly climate change are totally unacceptable. The Minister believes that people have no impact on climate change, despite the fact that experts and scientists across the globe are saying that they do.

"Recently Sammy Wilson blocked an information campaign on highlighting climate change and what we can do to tackle it, this was despite the vast majority of peoples growing concern about environmental issues.

"That is the reason why I seconded today's vote at the committee. The Minister has responsibilities to listen to the concerns of the people, the committee and experts throughout the world." CRÍOCH
