RESIGNATION OF THE FIRST MINISTER
STATEMENT RESPONSE FROM BELFAST CHAMBER ON RESIGNATION OF THE FIRST MINISTER – Thursday 3RD February 2022 – 17:15HRS
Commenting after the resignation of the First Minister, Belfast Chamber Chief Executive Simon Hamilton said, “Another period of political instability is the last thing that Northern Ireland, its people or its economy needs. Big decisions on budgets, lifting COVID restrictions and amending work from home guidance will now go unmade, adversely impacting businesses and their staff. Business owners in Belfast and across Northern Ireland will not welcome the uncertainty they now face into especially after experiencing such a torrid time during the pandemic. They deserve better than yet more instability and uncertainty”.
