SDLP MPS told DVA jobs decision expected in the New Year

SDLP MPs Margaret Ritchie and Mark Durkan have been told a decision on the future of more than 300 under threat DVA jobs in the North is expected in the New Year.

The news emerged as the SDLP MPs met with Transport Minister Robert Goodwill today.

The MPs said: “We were told a decision is expected in the New Year. It means staff face an anxious time over Christmas, but we really hope the minister will see sense and keep the jobs here. It is the only decision that makes sense.

“In the meantime, the SDLP will continue to do what we can to make sure these jobs are retained here at home. ”  

Last week, Ms Ritchie, Mr Durkan and Limavady SDLP mayor, Cllr Gerry Mullan presented a petition signed by over 40,000 people opposed to the Government plans.
