Retail NI Response to NI Budget Statement

Retail NI have issued a response to the Budget Statement

Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“There is no doubt that this Budget will be brutal for public services and will put Civil Servants in an incredibly difficult position when deciding on how to apply severe cuts”

“Executive Ministers should be in office producing a multi-year budget and a Programme for Government instead of this unacceptable situation”

“While a restored Executive will not be a silver bullet to the many problems facing Northern Ireland, it would much better than the current chaotic way of running an administration in Northern Ireland”

“A review of how Northern Ireland is financed and the Barnet Formula should be priority for the UK Government"
