Community hall grants scheme highlights DUP arrogance - Murphy

15 January, 2017 - by Conor Murphy

Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has said concerns about DUP Minister Paul Givan's community hall grants scheme highlight the need to address DUP arrogance. 

Mr Murphy said; 

"I have been contacted by applicants to the Community Hall Grants Scheme whose applications were refused and they are now concerned about the process.  

"One rejection letter to a GAA club flippantly dismissed the application stating their 'organisation was not eligible to receive support'. 

"The list of recipients now in the public domain shows clearly these public funds have been significantly directed at one section of the community. 

"This is  yet another example of blatant discrimination and the DUP’s contempt for the wider public. It further undermines public confidence in the political institutions.

"People must now be allowed to have their say on the DUP’s arrogance in an election."
