Sinn Féin’s Raymond McCartney has called on UUP leader Mike Nesbitt to clarify his position on an Irish language act.
“Last year, UUP leader Mike Nesbitt criticised Sinn Féin for calling for an Irish Language Act in line with the commitments made in the St Andrew’s Agreement.
“The demand for an Irish language act is entirely justified and the DUP’s disgraceful attitude toward the Irish language and identity is unacceptable.
“We now need clarity from Mike Nesbitt and the UUP on their position on an Irish language act.
“Do they accept it as part of the St Andrew’s Agreement or are they going to follow behind the DUP in attempting to deny people’s rights?”
