Time SDLP put money where its mouth is

Published 11/07/2013

SDLP MLA Dolores Kelly has said that legislation going through Westminster would ensure that we could see who was bankrolling Sinn Fein and the DUP.

I wrote an open letter, exposing how the SDLP refuses to publish its accounts – although Margaret Ritchie, as leader, promised to do so three years ago.

Of all the main parties, only Sinn Fein publishes full accounts.

I have called on Dolores to put her money where her mouth is by publishing the accounts.

In the light of the Red Sky scandal, it is more important than ever that we have transparency.

So, Dolores: why the hold-up in publishing the SDLP accounts? Will we still be waiting in another three years?
