Tony Lloyd comments on calls for Stormont’s return

Tony Lloyd MP, Labour’s Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary, commenting on calls for Stormont’s return, said:

“The message I have heard loud and clear when speaking to people in Northern Ireland is that they need decision making restored at Stormont. This is the same message coming from the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action.

“Power sharing will not be restored unless parties are around the table talking, something that has not happened now since February. The Secretary of State should formally write to all parties today inviting them to talks in the coming weeks.

“Northern Ireland needs an Executive in Belfast that can deliver to improve the lives of all and a Government in Westminster that will stand up for the many not the few.”
