19 July, 2016 - by Barry McElduff


Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has said it is vital the rights and entitlements of ethnic minority groups are protected. 

Mr McElduff said; 

"Those who have come to make their home here make a huge and invaluable contribution to our society. 

"On Thursday his week I, alongside my colleague Michaela Boyle, will be convening a meeting with representatives of the Omagh Ethnic Community Support Group and representatives of the Strabane Ethnic Association in Strabane.  

"It is designed to give voice to and provide a listening ear to the concerns of ethnic minority communities, particularly around the potential impact of the EU referendum vote. 

"I also intend to convene a meeting with representatives of the Law Centre and other statutory bodies to address these concerns.

"It is vital the rights and entitlements of ethnic minority communities are protected and the democratic views of the people of the North are respected."
