Cobain accused of ‘gross incompetence’

7 June, 2007

Sinn Féin Regional Development Spokesperson, Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney has accused the Chair of the Regional Development of gross incompetence.

Mr McCartney said:

"Fred Cobain's politicking has denied the committee the opportunity to play the full role in the development of the terms of reference of the Review of Water Charges.

"However, I am sure that when Conor Murphy announces the terms of reference that it will not only reflect the views of the committee but also of the wider stakeholders in our society.

"Fred is abusing his position as chair of the committee for narrow party politicking and is failing to represent the views of the committee." ENDS
