Sinn Féin welcome Business Alliance to St Andrews

13 October, 2006

Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson, Francie Molloy MLA met with representatives of the Business Alliance who travelled to Scotland today to meet with all of the political parties involved in the talks.

Speaking after the meeting Mr Molloy said:

"It is important that all those who will be affected by a failure to get the institutions back up and running before the November 24th deadline make their voices heard.

"Business is clearly determined to encourage political progress and I very much welcome their straight forward message to the parties today, particularly to those who are refusing to fully engage in efforts to secure the institutions.

"Sinn Féin have also put the issue of a Peace Dividend firmly on the talks table because we believe that we require a substantial package of financial and fiscal measures to underpin the work of an incoming Executive." ENDS
