North Antrim UUP MLA and candidate for Westminster for North Antrim, Robin Swann, has called on the Sinn Fein arts minister to “put her money where her mouth is over equality and guarantee funding for Ballymoney’s Ulster-Scots fUSe radio station”.

Responding the Minister said: “The Ulster-Scots Agency funds the Ullans Speakers’ Association which includes the fUSe FM community radio presence in Ballymoney, as well as the premises from which the station is operated. The Agency is committed to the development of a full-time radio station for Ulster-Scots culture in Ballymoney and supported the Ullans Speakers’ Association in securing a full-time licence from Ofcom.

“The minister gives the impression she is chomping at the bit to get funding for the Irish language, but is dragging her feet on funding the much-needed Ulster-Scots radio station in Ballymoney.”
