Government has no authority to implement their banking plan – Morgan

30 March, 2010


Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Arthur Morgan has said the Government has no authority to further re-capitalise the banks today. Deputy Morgan said the Government is making a decision today that will impact hugely on generations to come at a time when their support levels are at a record low and it is clear that the people do not support their economic strategy.

Speaking today Deputy Morgan said, “The Government should not proceed today with the measures they are due to announce as they have no mandate to do so. We are calling on the Government to give the people their say. The people are the largest stakeholders in this decision yet they have been given no say.

“The Government is making a decision today that will impact hugely on generations to come at a time when their support levels are at a record low and it is clear that the people do not support their economic strategy.

“I am therefore calling for an immediate General Election to let all the respective parties put forward their economic plans and let the people have their say on the way out of this mess.” ENDS
