Mid Ulster MP Francie Molloy has said that the campaign to locate the new Community Safety College at Desertcreat is not over yet.

Sinn Féin, he said, are insisting the Executive honour its Programme for Government commitment.

“This project has been on the discussion and drawing table for too long. It is time the Justice Minister, David Ford followed through on the commitment made by all of the Executive in the Programme for Government,” said the MP.

“I understand that Minister Ford has been advised in very clear terms that Desertcreat is still and will remain the preferred option for the new college.”

Mr Molloy added: “He now must bring fresh proposals to the Executive as to when and how this project will proceed.”

“I have strongly supported the project and supported Cookstown Council and local businesses in their lobby to bring the College to Cookstown.
