Ministerial mind to turn?

An interesting, and short, snippet from the end of Stormont Live today. According to the BBC’s political editor Mark Devenport “all the buzz”, as the Assembly’s Environment Committee waits on Section 44 being imposed by the Speaker, is that the Environment minister, the DUP’s Arlene Foster, will use a ministerial statement tomorrow to “row back” on her previous position of being “of a mind to approve” Seymour Sweeney’s private development of the Causeway Visitor’s Centre and instead approve a publicly funded project [Or “be of a mind to approve”.. – Ed]. We’ll find out tomorrow whether it’s claimed that was the intention all along.. but such a u-turn could, as the previous statement did, have implications for the Tourism minister.. let’s hope they’ve budgeted for that eventuality.. and any other alternative views..
