Treasury committee comes to town – this is your chance!


After grim news likely to be delivered to First Ministers tomorrow by Gordon Brown, this should be worth attending.

P.S. Will Sinn Fein with so much attention devoted to the south where they have so little influence, have anything relevant to say except to rattle the begging bowl? This , like it or not, is where the focus of power lies.

As part of its inquiry into the Banking Crisis the Treasury Committee
will be making a series of regional visits to discuss the consequences
of the financial crisis with members of the public. The first visit will
be to Belfast on Monday 2 March.

The meeting will be held in the Senate Chamber, Parliament Buildings,
Stormont and will begin at 11.15am and last for up to 45 minutes.

Space is limited and tickets will be issued on a first-come-first-served
basis. Members of the public interested in attending should email to reserve a seat.
