Sinn Féin to bring peace process focus to resolving Water Charges

19 February, 2007


Sinn Féin Chief Negotiator Martin McGuinness today joined Sinn Féin candidates in West Belfast for a walkabout in the Kennedy Centre. Mr McGuinness said that his party in an Executive would bring the same energy and focus to resolving the issue of Water Charges as they did to key issues of importance in the Peace Process.

Mr McGuinness said:

"I have been out in a number of constituencies in the past week or so. There is a clear sense that people want this to work. They want this election campaign to result in fully functioning institutions.

"They want local politicians sorting out local problems. The issue of Water Charges has been raised many times.

"Let me say that in an Executive Sinn Féin will bring the same energy and the same focus to resolving this issue as we have to other key issues of concern in the Peace Process such as Policing or Demilitarisation." ENDS
