SDLP Foyle MLA Mark H Durkan MLA has described the remarks made by Gregory Campbell in the Assembly chamber in relation to the Irish Language as disgraceful.

Mr Durkan said:“The main point which Mr Campbell succeeded in making was that of his own narrow and bigoted attitude towards the Irish Language. We had something similar in the past from Sammy Wilson, but even Mr Wilson has grown up since then. Mr Campbell also needs to do some growing up.

“The SDLP will be raising the issue with the Office of the Speaker and will be demanding that Mr Campbell comes before the house to apologise for his disrespectful remarks.”
