Motion: Protecting Core Public Services


That this Assembly commends the Executive parties on presenting a unified approach in highlighting the drastic reduction in the block grant and the consequent effect that this has on the Executive’s ability to defend public services; calls on the British government to recognise the unique challenges which we face as a society emerging from conflict with higher levels of socio-economic deprivation; and further calls on the Executive to maintain its protection of core public services, in particular health, welfare, and education.

Ms J McCann
Mr D McKay
Mr A Maskey

Motion: Employment Levels in the North West


That this Assembly notes the alarmingly low levels of employment in the Derry City, Strabane District and Limavady Borough council areas; further notes that investment in infrastructure and skills in the North West has suffered decades of neglect; recognises the importance of university expansion and improved transport links in growing the local economy; and calls on the Executive to work collaboratively to ensure balanced regional growth by resourcing and delivering the One Plan commitments to expand the Magee campus, dual the A5 and A6 and upgrade the Derry/Londonderry - Belfast rail line.

Mr P Ramsey
