“We need an Executive up and running now to get the £435 million marooned in the Executive’s bank account out the door to help tackle the cost-of-living crisis.

“The easiest and quickest way to do that is to form an Executive.

“The DUP should work with the rest of us in an Executive to make politics work, tackle the cost of living crisis and the crisis in our health service,” he adds.
