Ald Kieran McCarthy said: “I was a member of the all-party group that worked to assist the Multiple Sclerosis Society in the Assembly and I hope that the organisation will continue to fulfil its vital role in Northern Ireland.
“I led the way in arranging a meeting with the Minister and led the way in the campaign which secured two million pounds of funding from Shaun Woodward, to assist people with Multiple Sclerosis in Northern Ireland.
“The Multiple Sclerosis Society is an excellent organisation and we worked extremely well with all the officers.
“I hope this situation can be resolved in a satisfactory manner as soon as possible.
“My experience with the organisation has been massively positive and they play a vital role in supporting people with Multiple Sclerosis in Northern Ireland.”
