David Ford said: “It was disingenuous of the Stormont Executive to promise that they would meet weekly to tackle their backlog of work, as they have failed to meet since the middle of December.
“People have given the Executive a second chance following their five-month stalemate but they are already failing to live up to their promises.
“This failure to meet clearly demonstrates the Executive parties’ lack of ambition for Northern Ireland.
“Many jobs are being lost here every week and confusion still reigns on plans for the replacement of the 11-plus. It’s disgraceful that the Executive are having a long Christmas holiday while our economy is suffering daily and local parents are having sleepless nights over their children’s futures.
“The public were back at work on Monday at the very latest, so I am sure everyone will be annoyed that the Executive were not.”
