Further Tory cuts undermining budget progress - McKay
Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay has said the British government's announcement of £3 billion in-year cuts undermines the efforts of the Executive to make progress on a budget.
Mr McKay said;
"David Cameron's failure to rule out further cuts to disability benefits is a clear indication of the Tories' determination to save money at the expense of the most vulnerable in our society.
"While the Executive attempts to find a way forward, the British government is pressing ahead with its cuts agenda and reducing the finances available to the Executive.
"The British government, with no mandate from the people of the North, has again increased the difficulties for the Executive."
