Lyttle says we won’t attract major investment without a shared society

Alliance OFMDFM spokesperson Chris Lyttle MLA has said we won’t attract major investment without a shared society. He was responding to comments made by the DUP’s Sammy Wilson during an interview on Sunday, who appeared to down play the prospect of an Executive Shared Future strategy and also suggested that by creating a strong economy we would build a shared Northern Ireland.

Chris Lyttle MLA said: “I think Sammy has put the cart before the horse on this one. We will not be able to attract major investment until we deliver a shared society.

“I am concerned by the mixed messages the DUP are sending out on a shared future. It was only a few days ago that Peter Robinson claimed in the Assembly that he had a Shared Future Strategy and Action Plan that could be published immediately, yet Sammy is now questioning whether or not this is even necessary.

“The delivery of a shared future is one of the major challenges facing the Executive. The First and deputy First Minister must start a new process by politicians and members of civic society working together to produce a strategy that will help deliver a shared and more prosperous future for everyone.”
