"Irish Language Consultation a sham" - Allister

13 March 2007

Statement by Jim Allister MEP:-
"The publication today by DCAL of proposals for an Irish Language Bill demonstrates that its consultation process was a farce. It is not compatible with due process and genuine consideration of points arising from a consultation to close the consultation on 2 March 2007 and publish legislative proposals 7 working days later.  Clearly, the consultation - itself flawed, as illustrated in my detailed response document - was mere window-dressing, because all the time DCAL was working on the legislation, which it promised to Sinn Fein at St Andrews as a sop to republicanism, while going through the mere motions of consultation.

DCAL and the NIO stand exposed as puppets whose strings have been pulled by POBAL/Sinn Fein."
