SDLP South Down MLA Seán Rogers has questioned the Deputy First Minister on whether the Narrow Water Bridge was discussed at the North South Ministerial Council. Mr Rogers questioned McGuinness on the floor of the Assembly on Tuesday and said he would continue to monitor progress of the project on both sides of the border. Speaking afterwards to Newry Times, he said: “I asked was the Narrow Water Bridge discussed at the latest North South Ministerial Council because I believe that, as it has been passed planning by Alex Attwood and secured funding from the SEUPB, it’s imperative that the right focus and determination is matched by both departments both side of the border to see the project through. “The Deputy First Minister responded that it was indeed raised at the North South Ministerial Meeting, and that both finance departments, north and south, were working on their commitment. Rogers added, “I welcome that. This bridge has the potential to become an economic driver for the entire South Down area, and I will continue to monitor its progress through to completion.”
