SDLP continuing to mislead the public over RHI scandal - Murphy

1 March, 2017 - by Conor Murphy


Sinn Féin's Conor Murphy has said the SDLP are continuing to mislead the public over the RHI scandal. 

Mr Murphy said: 

"Like Arlene Foster, the SDLP seems to be labouring under the misapprehension that if you say something often enough people will believe it. 

"But you can't hoodwink the public when the facts tell a different story. 

"The reality is that the SDLP found out about the scale of the RHI scandal at the same time as other Executive parties. Their Executive minister received a letter from the then DETI minister urging a shutdown of the scheme on February 5, 2016.

"Yet ten days later the SDLP voted to keep RHI open while Sinn Féin took action and moved quickly to shut the botched RHI scheme down permanently. 

"While others talked, Sinn Féin acted and the public now have the chance to have their say."
