Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has welcomed the announcement of plans for new regional hubs to decentralise civil service jobs and tackle regional imbalance.
The Foyle MLA said:
“Sinn Féin is committed to tackling regional imbalances in our economy and this includes decentralisation of public sector jobs and creating more opportunities in these areas.
“Today’s announcement from the Finance Minister is a positive step.
“This is only the start of this work and I am delighted that Orchard House will be converted into a regional hub.
“These hubs will enable staff to work closer to home and provide a boost to the local economy while also promoting our economic recovery from Covid19.”
