SDLP MLA Colum Eastwood has branded DSD Minister Nelson McCausland’s failure to spend £17m in funding this year as an “insult” to 3,000 people in need of housing in Derry.

Mr Eastwood said it was “absolutely shocking” the Department for Social Development has confirmed it will fail to spend the money in the current financial year as Derry’s housing crisis continues to deepen.

The £17million underspend is now to be handed back.
