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.”
