Rural White Paper Welcomed - McMullan

28 June, 2012 - by Oliver McMullan


Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has welcomed the publication of the Rural White Paper by Agriculture Minister Michelle O’Neill.

Mr McMullan said,

“There are many issues that affect the rural community and the publication of this paper today will outline a strategy of how we address them.

“Whether it is concerns round farming, lack of broadband, health facilities or limited public transport there is a vast array of issues that have to be addressed in rural communities in order to allow them to access services that other people take for granted. 

“The paper outlines a commitment not only from the Agriculture Department but from all the departments in the Executive to an action plan that will make a positive impact on the entire rural community.

“I would commend the Minister Michelle O’Neill for bringing all the departments together and the publication of this paper which will drive equality in rural life for the foreseeable future.”
