Michael McDonald said: “David Ford and I discussed a number of important local issues when we met.
“We discussed the plans for the new public services training college in Desertcreat which has the potential to provide a real boost to the economy. Desertcreat has the potential to provide many jobs in construction and also when the college is operational.
“We also discussed growing the economy and creating new jobs in the area and we talked about the need to tackle segregation right across Northern Ireland.
“Alliance is leading change in Northern Ireland and we are leading the way in helping deliver a shared future for all.”
