DUP need to tell voters who funded their Brexit campaign - Toman

20 February, 2017 - by Nuala Toman


Sinn Féin's Nuala Toman has called on the DUP to tell the electorate who gave them the money for their Brexit advertising campaign.

The Upper Bann candidate said:

"Today the DUP pledged as part of their ten commitments for negotiations post-election to increase transparency and accountability.

"Their mishandling of the RHI scandal damaged public confidence in the political institutions. In order to restore some of that confidence the DUP should release this information now.

"By promoting a pro-Brexit stance the DUP were not acting in the best interests of the people of the North and they continue to do so by insisting that we are dragged out of the European Union against our wishes.

"The majority of citizens recognised the significant economic and political damage leaving the EU will create for farmers, local communities, jobs and trade. 

"People have a right to know who funded the DUP campaign, how and where that money was spent, and how much was received?

"There are strict rules around corporate sponsorship and there can be no place for anyone attempting to get around those rules."
