DUP ministers should stop playing musical chairs and return to work - McCorley

6 October, 2015 - by Raymond McCartney


Sinn Féin health spokesperson Rosie McCorley said today that DUP ministers should stop playing musical chairs and return to work on behalf of all the people of the community.

Rosie McCorley was speaking after the DUP’s DETI minister Jonathon Bell made a statement in the Assembly today on the issue of credit unions and insolvency.

The West Belfast MLA said:

"I welcome the fact that Jonathon Bell showed up to work today for half an hour. However, the reality is we need ministers to be in their posts every day, doing their jobs and working for the entire community. 

"The public expect, and are entitled to see ministers doing the jobs they are supposed to be doing. 

"The DUP's position is becoming more farcical by the day when one minister can come into the Assembly to answer questions on financial matters but the health minister failed to turn up to discuss cancer waiting times. 

"The DUP ministers need to stop playing musical chairs and return to their jobs immediately."
