Cllr Alan Lawther said: ” At council yesterday, I requested that they write to the NIO to find out about any side deals done on the Review of Public Administration during last week’s St Andrews talks.
“This will help blow the lid off any side deals done on RPA at St Andrews last week.
“The public has a right to know about any side deals done in St Andrews and we will do all in our power to seek the truth for everyone in Northern Ireland.
“If we find out about side deals now, it will save time on everyone’s behalf because we will be able to see the direction in which government is moving on the RPA. The Review of Public Administration has far-reaching consequences for Northern Ireland; therefore, there must be openness and transparency on this matter.”
