Motion: EU Regional Aid


That this Assembly recognises the positive effect that Northern Ireland's 100 percent coverage for EU Regional Aid has had on the economy; believes that it has been significant in aiding economic growth and inward investment; is concerned that removing this automatic coverage would have a detrimental impact on the economy, jobs and growth; and calls on the Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment to continue to lobby the Government at Westminster and the European Commission to ensure that EU Regional Aid is retained for all of Northern Ireland.
