Welcome for Invest Strategy Commitment
Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has welcomed the conformation that the current British Government will honour the Investment Strategy agreed as a result of the St. Andrews Agreement.
Mr McGuinness said:
“Over the course of recent weeks we have built a strong political consensus and put a strong case to the British Treasury that the commitments entered into by the previous British government concerning significant investment in the north needed to be honoured, just as the Irish government has honoured their obligations in this regard.
“It now appears that the British government have moved to recognise that moving away from these commitments and specifically the Investment Strategy is not acceptable.
“This shows what is possible when we pull together and put a strong united case forward.” ENDS
