Clarifying jobs figures for A5

Published 15/03/2013

I WOULD like to clarify a statement made by Eamonn McCann (Comment, March 14). I stated that 1,200 jobs would be created by the A5, as this figure was given in evidence at the committee for regional development.

I'm not sure where Declan McAleer (Sinn Fein MLA for West Tyrone) is getting the figure of 800 from.
