The Foyle MLA said:

“News that 240 staff members will move to the £20m facility in the first phase of relocation is to be welcomed.

“The move by my party leader Michelle O’Neill as former Agriculture Minister to decentralise the DARD headquarters to Ballykelly was a positive step for the North West and employment in the area.”
