As attention now shifts to the Thursday deadline for an agreement on restoring power sharing at Stormont, DUP Foyle MLA Gary Middleton said the ‘confidence and supply’ deal at Westminster was good news for everyone here and could help secure the delivery of major infrastructure projects for the north west. Middleton was speaking after his party leader, Arlene Foster and Theresa May, formally announced that they had agreed a pact, which will see the DUP’s 10 MPs - including East Derry’s Gregory Campbell - supporting the government in parliament on key issues including Brexit, the budget, motions of confidence and on the Queen’s speech.

“I am very proud to be from Derry City and the people of Derry are close to my heart.

THE DUP POLITICIAN who mocked the Irish language earlier this month has said he would treat a proposed Irish Language Act “as no more than toilet paper”.

Police said that security operations of this nature “bring significant disruption to the community and present challenges to the PSNI as they attempt to minimise disruption whilst keeping the community safe from harm”.

PSNI Inspector Mullan said: “We attended the area following reports of a suspicious object and ATO were tasked.“ We called to a number of homes in Glengalliagh Park and advised residents to leave their homes.

For ourselves in Northern Ireland, the agreement is worth £1.5 billion in additional money to what we had.”Mr.

Middleton said that this will involve an additional £400m for infrastructure over the next two years.“Infrastructure is vital for us here in the north-west and the A5 and A6 are two projects we really need to see delivered,” he said.

The document mentions the York Street interchange as a priority but as far as we’re concerned, investment to end regional disparity must be the primary political priority.”Other parts of the funding agreed will go towards health, education and broadband initiatives.
