Money found down the back of the sofa for airport

Green Party leader Steven Agnew MLA has outlined his concerns as £7m has been found by the Northern Ireland Executive to bail out City of Derry airport.

Steven Agnew MLA said,

“It is amazing the amount of money the Executive can find down the back of the sofa.

“Instead of developing a sustainable transport plan for Northern Ireland, the Executive has thrown money at this problem simply because it is in the Deputy First Minister’s back yard.

“The Executive should establish an air transport strategy that meets the wider needs of Northern Ireland society and our economy and establish once for all whether Northern Ireland really needs three airports.”
