Invest NI, which supports economic development here through grants to companies, is in a frustrating predicament where it is unable to function as normal due to a lack of certainty over its budget for 2022-23.

That is compounding an already precarious position caused by the post-Brexit loss of support from the EU, which bolstered what once was Invest NI’s own financial clout.
