Finucane calls for joined up approach to tackle unwanted bonfires

Sinn Féin MP John Finucane has called on statutory agencies to play an active part in helping to prevent unwanted bonfires in the area.
The North Belfast MP said:

“Today we have contacted the relevant departments and agencies regarding unwanted bonfire material that is being stored on their land.

“We have pressed the need for this wood to be removed as a matter of urgency.

“As political representatives we are committed to doing all that we can to ensure that local residents do not suffer the same anti-social behaviour as last year.

“The only way that we will succeed in this objective is through a joined up approach between statutory agencies, Government Departments and the local community.

“Sinn Féin will continue to work alongside relevant agencies and departments to support the right of the local community to live lives free from anti-community fires and the tension that they generate.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
