Ó Donnghaile comments on Airport Inquiry delay
Sinn Féin’s Cllr Niall Ó Donnghaile has said that there should be no further delays in implementing a full, public inquiry into the proposed runway extension at Belfast City Airport.
Speaking today the Councillor for Pottinger said;
“The whole issue of the runway extension is one that has been allowed to rumble on for an unacceptable period of time. During the election campaign this subject was coming up on countless doorsteps; it is obviously a cause for concern for many citizens in Belfast and beyond.
It is passed time that people on both sides of this debate had the opportunity to have their voices heard. The continued delay of a public inquiry is unhelpful.
It is vital that all the relevant information is submitted ahead of any inquiry, but it should not be allowed to needlessly delay what is a necessary requirement for many people affected by the airport.
I hope that this matter can be resolved as quickly as possible and that the inquiry is allowed to take place to give voice to all of those concerned.” CRÍOCH
