‘Double blow to economy’: MLA

Recent job losses in Derry are a stark reminder of the need to attract inward investment to the city, SDLP MLA Colum Eastwood has said.

Mr. Eastwood said the loss of around 60 jobs at both the Musgrave Cash and Carry depot at Pennyburn and at local call centre Rigney Dolphin was “a double blow for the city’s economy”.

“Priority must be given to Derry in terms of investment in infrastructure and targeted strategic inward investment.”
