Lagan Valley area being neglected

Hilton Cubitt's recent correspondence regarding the steady economic decline of Lagan Valley was very interesting.

It is most depressing that the DUP and the sitting MP, Jeffrey Donaldson, have not as yet managed to attract any substantial inward investment at all to the area.

The loss of John Lewis over the planning row has come at a particularly bad time. The Maze site could be used for a business, or technology park. One wonders why this has not gone ahead.

I know of several manufacturers in Munich who might be interested in setting up - if the site was available.

Lagan Valley urgently needs jobs, as more and more skilled workers, such as myself, are leaving to find employment abroad.
