‘Elephant in the room’?

BALLYCASTLE SDLP councillor Dónal Cunningham is asking Moyle Council to place the ‘Audit of Inequalities’, conducted in 2011, before the elected chamber and the public as soon as possible.

He said the content of this report needs to be better communicated, fully examined and acted upon.

“The report needs to be presented as part of a public consultation exercise alongside recommendations and action plans. To date this has not happened; it is disappointing to hear the report labelled as ‘the elephant in the room’ when clearly it has never been ‘in the room’.

“An essential element of the report is to highlight any regional inequalities. It is important that councillors approach this openly and honestly and without sectarian mindsets,” said Cllr Cunningham.
