The Strangford MLA stated: “The Alliance Party has long held the view that the Housing Executive should provide ‘mixed’ housing, and we have worked long and hard for this to come about.
“This is not the end of the road, however. It is merely the beginning of a process where we will seek to see the provision of mixed housing become the norm.
“Segregated housing is not a right. If we were to provide whites-only and blacks-only housing there would be outcry. Religious segregation is no more acceptable that racial segregation.
“The provision of mixed housing must become universal as quickly as possible.”
