Ford welcomes PFG committee’s support for openness

Alliance Leader David Ford has claimed a victory for progress at today’s Preparation for Government Committee. He has been successful in getting all-party support for a request to gain access to all private correspondence issued by government regarding the St Andrews Agreement.

David Ford stated: “In the Preparation for Government Committee I asked the other parties to support my request to government to make public all correspondence relating to the St Andrews deal. This request was unanimously accepted.

“Transparency and openness are the keys to political progress in Northern Ireland.

“We are trying to get the full story surrounding the government’s promises to various parties. These appear to cover a raft of issues, some hinted at and others undisclosed. This will ensure that there is complete openness in the process, for the benefit of everyone in Northern Ireland.”
