Eastwood: Politics must address challenges and crises we face

SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood has welcomed signals that a deal is finally within reach between the DUP and Sinn Féin. Mr Eastwood said the SDLP would await the publication of its detail before giving full judgement. The SDLP Leader added that after a year of political failure the focus must immediately return to the threat of Brexit, a stagnant economy and the crises in our health service and in school budgets – priorities entirely absent in the negotiation between the DUP and Sinn Féin. In order to help bring that focus, Mr Eastwood has once again set out the SDLP’s priorities if a Programme for Government negotiation begins in the week ahead.
