I won't accept botched solution to RHI scandal - Ó Muilleoir

10 January, 2017 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said today he will not accept any botched solution to the loss of public funds through the DUP’s Renewable Heat Incentive.

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said:

“Today the DUP Leader Arlene Foster claimed her party had been working on solutions to the RHI issue over the last number of weeks.

“For over seven months I have been requesting credible proposals from the Economy Minister. The DUP minister has brought no plan forward.

“In fact a paper from the Department for the Economy was submitted to my department at 5:55pm on Monday but withdrawn ten minutes later.

“My officials have continued to examine the operation of the scheme.

“Yesterday, Moy Park briefed my officials in relation to new concerns over the RHI scheme.

“That briefing has raised further issues.

“The operation of this scheme has been botched; I can assure the public that I will not accept a botched solution.”
