Sinn Féin committed to creating neutral environment - McGuigan
Sinn Féin councillor Sean McGuigan has said the Mid Ulster Council is committed to creating a neutral environment in all its buildings and facilities.
The Mid Ulster councillor said;
"Sinn Féin is committed to creating a neutral environment for all staff and users of council-owned facilities in Mid Ulster.
"The Cookstown, Dungannon and Magherafelt areas had different policies on emblems and symbols and we saw the creation of the Mid Ulster Council as an opportunity for a fresh start.
"We wanted to create an environment of equality and neutrality in council-owned facilities.
"This interim arrangement will cover the sale and display of all symbols, including poppies and Easter Lilies, at all council buildings.
"This is part of Sinn Féin's ongoing commitment to equality."
