17 February, 2017 - by John O'Dowd

Sinn Féin's John O'Dowd has called on the DUP to clarify who funded its lavish pro-Brexit advertising campaign. 

Mr O'Dowd said; 

"Revelations that the DUP received huge amounts of money from England to fund its lavish pro-Brexit advertising campaign raise serious questions. 

"The DUP took hugely expensive newspaper ads in a London newspaper which is not circulated in the North and DUP campaign material was also used in other British cities where they do not stand for election. 

"The DUP need to come clean and clarify who gave them the money and how much they received. 

"It is vitally important in the wake of other scandals that the DUP clarify this in order to ensure integrity in the political process. 

"There are strict rules around corporate sponsorship and there can be no place for anyone attempting to get around those rules."
