City Deal can build inclusive growth - Hargey
In advance of Monday's Autumn Statement Belfast Mayor Deirdre Hargey has called on the British government to give a strong commitment to the Belfast Region City Deal.
Deirdre Hargey said:
“The Council has worked hard to ensure that this Deal will make a positive difference to people in our most deprived communities.
"Projects have been selected that bring opportunity to all communities and we’ve worked with colleges to help people who are out of work access the jobs that will be created.
“What we need now is an announcement in the Autumn Budget which will tell us that the British government can match the Council's ambition and is committed to funding this plan for inclusive growth.”
