Villiers' input will not be missed - O'Dowd

14 July, 2016 - by John O'Dowd


Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has said Theresa Villiers' input to politics in the North will not be missed. 

Mr O'Dowd said; 

"I wish Theresa Villiers well personally but politically she will not be missed. 

"She has been the representative of a British government which inflicted austerity, welfare cuts and now Brexit on the people of the North. 

"She also played a negative role in dealing with the legacy of the conflict, continually placing obstacles in the path of families seeking access to truth. 

"The position of Secretary of State is unnecessary. It should be abolished and all remaining powers of the NIO transferred to the Assembly."
