‘Devastating blow’ for DVA staff

SDLP MLA Colum Eastwood has described the centralisation of more than 300 DVA jobs to Wales as devastating for staff, their families and the local economy.

“There is no justification for this move. It is severely damaging to the economy throughout County Derry and Northern Ireland and damaging to the standards of service currently provided to the public,” he said.

Mr Eastwwod accused London of a “complete betrayal of DVA staff.”
