Joint meeting on north-south Parliamentary Forum held at Stormont
Sinn Féin’s Pat Doherty MP and Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD have both attended a joint meeting between representatives from the Assembly and Oireachtas, on progressing the north-south Parliamentary Forum, which was held at Stormont this afternoon.
Speaking after the meeting Pat Doherty MP said;
“I welcome today’s meeting and am pleased that progress has been made in moving forward the plans for implementing the north-south Parliamentary Forum without any delay.”
Afterwards Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD said;
“Today’s meeting agreed that we would work to ensure the establishment of the north-south Parliamentary Forum before the end of this year.
This is welcome news and part and parcel of the continuing development of all-Ireland co-operation and development. Effective representation for citizens across the Island, bringing elected representatives together on issues of concern to all our people is what is needed in the time ahead as we head deeper into the economic recession and all that that means for Ireland.” CRÍOCH
