Retail NI & Hospitality Ulster Welcome £15m For Flooding Damage
09 November 2023
Retail NI and Hospitality Ulster have jointly welcomed the announcement of £15m by the NI Secretary of State for businesses impacted by the Floods as a first step toward recovery.
Retail NI and Hospitality Ulster Chief Executives Glyn Roberts and Colin Neill said:
“This is a welcome first step towards the recovery and reopening of the impacted businesses. The next challenge will be getting the funding structure in place and payments distributed as quickly as possible”.
‘While this funding is welcome, much more will be needed to ensure Newry, Downpatrick and the other areas affected can rebuild for a speedy return to normal trading”.
“Speed is of the essence to ensure that these businesses do not miss the vital Christmas trading season”.
