Sinn Féín meet new British Secretary of State

3 July, 2007

Speaking after the meeting Sinn Féin Chief Whip in the Assembly Carál Ní Chuilín said:

"Today afforded us with the first opportunity to meet with the Shaun Woodward since he took up his position as the latest British Secretary of State.

"Clearly in the wake of the progress we have made in recent times with the restoration of the political institutions many of the functions of the NIO have moved from the British Direct Rule Ministers and into the hands of locally elected politicians.

"At today's discussions we impressed upon Mr Woodward the need to move to deal effectively with all outstanding matters including those agreed at St. Andrews late last year." ENDS
