Sinn Féin MLA Maeve McLaughlin has welcomed progress on the business case for the expansion of the university at Magee.
“At the latest Strategy Board meeting we were given an update on the progress of the business case for the expansion of Magee.
“The business case was presented to employment and learning minister Stephen Farry in December and is currently under consideration.
“I met with departmental officials to discuss the business case and I believe things are moving in the right direction.
“A number of points remain to be addressed but none of these are insurmountable.
“The business case presents a robust case for the expansion of the university and makes it clear that the city is speaking with one voice in calling for the expansion of Magee and I urge the minister to take this on board and progress this vital project for the city.” Ends/Críoch
