Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney along with deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness MLA met at Parliament Buildings today with Further Education Minister Stephen Farry to discuss progress on expansion of Magee University.
Following the meeting Raymond McCartney said:
“Martin McGuinness and myself held a very positive meeting with Further Education Minister Stephen Farry at Stormont today to discuss progress on expansion of Magee University campus.
“Minister Farry reiterated his commitment to take forward the expansion of Magee and the importance of this in terms of regenerating the economy in the north west.
“He also confirmed that he expects to bid for the necessary funding in the June monitoring round for the construction of the new £11m teaching block at Magee. Sinn Fein will obviously be supporting him in that.
“The Minister committed to engage and work closely with Foyle representatives over the time ahead to deliver on the expansion of Magee as an economic driver as outlined in the One Plan.” CRÍOCH/END
