West Belfast and Greater Shankill Employment Services Board

Sinn Fein's Paul Maskey tabled the adjournment debate on the lack of funding for the West Belfast and Greater Shankill Employment Services, on 29 November 2011.

He asked employment minister Stephen Farry to try to find £32,000 to sustain programmes which help people to find work until March 2012.

He was joined by the SDLP's Alex Attwood, and the DUP's William Humphrey in emphasising the effectiveness of the threatened programmes.

Stephen Farry said that while the money had been withdrawn in west Belfast, similar schemes had been rolled out in other deprived parts of Northern Ireland, and he was awaiting the outcome of a departmental bidding process.
