"This is a small but welcome boost over a longer period which hopefully an incoming Government of whatever hue will stand over and possibly expand upon. The key will be the delivery mechanism and how it might be used to deliver a multiplier effect to benefit local people" said East Londonderry MP Mr. Campbell.

Gary Middleton the MLA for Foyle added "This is some good news and while it is not a massive amount initially if utilised properly should benefit local people, I trust in the future it might be increased further so that people can see tangible benefits."
