Another step forward

Today’s announcement by the Finance Minister, Sammy Wilson, that the Executive will contribute £25m, equally matching a contribution from the Treasury, into an assistance package for the Presbyterian Mutual Society savers is to be welcomed. His assurance that ‘when the proposals are implemented this will put an end to the long nightmare faced by many PMS savers’ will be good news for all those that continue to suffer anxiety and despair.

This is another significant step forward and I would encourage everyone involved to make progress on the detailed arrangements as quickly as possible so that a fair and just resolution can be implemented as soon as the financial package can be accessed.
