DUP consider policy U turn

Jim Wells resigned as DUP environment spokesman last June following the DUP’s refusal to support an Environmental Protection agency. The BBC reported at the time that Jim’s support for an agency drew the remark “We all have our Jim Wells to bear”, after which he stood down. Now Arlene Foster has said that she is “open minded” on the issue and is awaiting costings . If Jim Wells was “out of step” with the majority of his colleagues last year, what has changed so radically?
