Alliance Party Leader, David Ford, has expressed his sadness upon learning of the death of Basil Glass, who was a founding member of the Alliance Party.
David Ford said:
“Basil played a leading role in the foundation of the Alliance Party. He will be remembered for his commitment to reconciliation, in its widest scope, not just for Alliance.
“Within the Alliance Party, Basil helped build its solid foundations. He was also heavily involved in working on behalf of the community of South Belfast, where he served as Councillor and Assembly Member in the 1970s.
“The entire community owes him a great debt for all his public activities.
“He will be sorely missed by us in the Alliance Party.”
