Support for transparency in Government – O’Dowd

28 September, 2009 - by John O'Dowd

Speaking after a report on MLA expenses was leaked to the media this evening, Sinn Féin Assembly Group Leader John O’Dowd said;

“Sinn Féin supports full and open transparency in Government which is why we publish our accounts annually and also put them on our website for scrutiny by the general public.

It is understandable that attention is coming on claims made by Assembly members given the current economic climate; however it is important to remember that Sinn Féin representatives each take home the average industrial wage, we utilise our office costs to ensure that we provide a first class constituency service right across the north; working on behalf of the people.” CRÍOCH
