Durkan: SDLP delivering by putting people first.
“We have heard terrible stories of vulnerable people losing services due to cuts. This is unacceptable to the SDLP. We will not tolerate waste and efficiency –people must come first.
“Ask the people of Fermanagh. I listened to their fears about fracking. I wasn’t satisfied that environmental harm would be prevented – and took my decision – putting people and the protection of the environment first.
“By pulling the toxic Planning Bill, I derailed another DUP/Sinn Fein power grab. I published the long awaited BMAP. Alex Attwood introduced the carrier bag levy when he was told it could not be done. It has been extremely successful both in terms of protecting our environment and providing a source of funding for environmental projects.
“This success has SDLP written all over it – creative thinking, strong leadership and delivery.”
