Training College must proceed
Sinn Féin MP Francie Molloy has said the joint training college planned for Desertcreat is a programme for government commitment and should be honoured.
Mr Molloy said,
“In reference to the report today that the police, fire and prison service training college planned for Desertcreat should not proceed it is important to realise that this is a Programme for Government commitment.
“A joint training facility was one of the Patten recommendations and we are still have the view that this can happen.
“Sinn Féin welcomed the choice of Cookstown as the site for the new joint training college and we recognise that this project would not only boost training but would also provide a major boost to the local area.
“We will continue to press for this facility to proceed at the present site.”
