Kelly attacks ‘cowardly and scurrilous allegations’ against Foyle MLAs

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has challenged the DUP and a Fianna Fáil Seanadóir to stop hiding behind parliamentary privilege and abusing it to make unfounded and scurrilous allegations. 

Gerry Kelly said: 

“There is absolutely no basis to scurrilous allegations made in recent days by Niall Blaney and Gregory Campbell about Sinn Féin’s MLAs Karen Mullan and Martina Anderson in Foyle. 

“These allegations are grossly defamatory and would be subject to public and legal scrutiny, without the cover and abuse of parliamentary privilege. 

“This is not the first time that the DUP in particular has abused privilege to make ludicrous and unfounded allegations.  

“The DUP need to stop hiding behind privilege and stop making cowardly allegations which have no basis in fact.”

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.
