Retail NI Slam UK Government Decision To Cut Levelling Up Funding for Northern Ireland
Commenting on the decision, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:
“This is a deeply disappointing and disgraceful decision by the UK Government. This funding would have helped with much needed efforts to regenerate our local high streets and town centres.”
“While it is crucial, we get Stormont restored, its absence should not be a reason to not proceed with these projects“
“Yet again local small businesses and independent retailers are losing out compared to their counterparts elsewhere in the UK”.
