Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney and deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness today met with Further Education Minister Stephen Farry to discuss progress on the expansion of Magee University.

After the meeting, Mr. McCartney said: “Minister Farry reiterated his commitment to take forward the expansion of Magee and the importance of this in terms of regenerating the economy in the north west.

“He also confirmed that he expects to bid for the necessary funding in the June monitoring round for the construction of the new £11m. teaching block at Magee. Sinn Fein will obviously be supporting him in that.

“The Minister committed to engage and work closely with Foyle representatives over the time ahead to deliver on the expansion of Magee as an economic driver as outlined in the One Plan,” said Mr. McCartney.
