Economy Minister should publish RHI names - Murphy

14 January, 2017 - by Conor Murphy


Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has called on Economy Minister Simon Hamilton for full disclosure of the names of participants in the botched RHI scheme. 

Mr Murphy said:

"Sinn Féin wants to get to the truth around the RHI scandal in order to restore public confidence in the political institutions. 

"The failure of the Department of the Economy to release the names of the beneficiaries of the botched RHI scheme further damages the political institutions.

“The public wants to know were there any conflicts of interest through business, family or political connections in the RHI scheme. 

“In particular people want to know more about the spike of applications to the scheme in 2015.

"There should be no further delay. The DUP Economy Minister has the ability to disclose the names and in the public interest he should do so immediately.”
