First Minister Peter Robinson has urged the Government to fulfill its promise to hand over former military sites to the Stormont Executive.


And after meetings with Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Secretary of State Shaun Woodward, Mr Robinson said he still held out hope.

He also said he disagreed with the remarks of NI Office Security Minister Paul Goggins that local political parties have “embellished” the generosity of the anticipated handover.

The DUP leader said the situation was clear cut in the Government’s own documents from 1995 in the run-up to the process which lead to the Good Friday Agreement.

“We want the Government to live up to the promise that they have made,” Mr Robinson told the Assembly.

In relation to the Lisanelly and St Lucia sites in Omagh — earmarked for a cross-community education project — Mr Robinson told Sinn Fein’s Barry McElduff that he and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness had pressed both Mr Brown and Mr Woodward and would continue to do so.

But he disagreed with the SDLP’s Alban Maginness who said potential investors wanted to see the transfer of policing and justice powers to Stormont as an indication of the stability of and confidence in the administration.

Mr Robinson said he had met hundreds of potential investors and that none of them had policing and justice at the top of t. eir list.
