“Moyle needs Investment not Austerity to get back on its feet “

21 05 2012

Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has expressed his concerns at the lack of details in the Social Investment Fund recently announced by the OFMDFM and has called on the Assembly Executive to prioritize jobs and investment to help the local economy cope with the economic crisis.
“Moyle has seen nothing from the Assembly Executive. The OFMDFM plan for a Social Investment Fund lacks clarity and transparency, all we know is that Moyle will be part of a bigger “Northern” regional group, one of nine areas. In the face of Westminster cuts, investing wisely is more important than ever, and capital investment projects are the only effective way of stimulating the economy. Yet despite rising unemployment, and the struggle that faces many families, the Assembly Executive have failed to bring forward a single new investment project which would benefit Moyle.
“Investment, and not austerity, is what is needed for the Moyle economy.”
