Cameron can’t ignore British government’s financial responsibility – McGuinness

20 November, 2014 - by Martin McGuinness

Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has described comments by British prime minister David Cameron on Tory cuts to the Executive budget as disingenuous and an effort to evade his responsibilities.

Martin McGuinness said:

“The pressures on the Executive’s budget are a direct result of year-on-year cuts to the block grant by David Cameron’s government.

“David Cameron is clearly trying to evade responsibility for the damage his government has done to the political process here and to public services.

“The British government has created the financial pressures on the Executive’s budget, only they can remove them.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
